Synopsis : With insightful readings of his source material - which includes "Norse" sagas, Eddic literature and church homilies - Arnved Nedkvitne sheds light on the complex and diversified nature of lay belief in medieval Norse society. One of the study's main claims suggests that laypeople had a firm belief in life after death - with all central rituals and beliefs seen as a means to this end. Yet, laypeople also had greater latitude in choosing between a sacred or secular understanding of their everyday lives than is often assumed: while religion was a fundamental source of norms, values and concepts at the time, laypeople also had to relate to state laws, codes of honour upheld by the local community and their own material interests. This book offers a comprehensive treatment of the diffusion of strains related to the subject at hand: from orthodox rituals to remnants of pagan religion, from Christian ethics to secular honour. Combining a powerful and lucid exploration of his material with astute methodological awareness, Arnved Nedkvitne paints a vivid picture of the religious and cultural landscape of medieval Norse society.

Synopsis: How important was religion for laymen in the Norse Middle Ages, and in what way was it important? This is the main problem discussed in the book. Most sagas are dominated by secular values, and traditionally this has determined historians' understanding of Norse society. However, in recent years more attention has been paid to religious ideas, which the Norse society had in common with the rest of Europe. Bourdieu's concept of 'social fields' is used to analyse the relationship between religious and secular mentalities. Karl Jaspers and Arnold Angenendt have discussed the relationship between rituals and ethics in pre-modern religion, the idea of miracles and supernatural interventions have been added as a third main element. Taking its point of departure in these three elements, the author discusses how important religion was for lay people.
