Nordic Religions in the Viking Age (The Middle Ages Series)

Nordic Religions in the Viking Age (The Middle Ages Series) - Thomas A. DuBois A better than average study which manages in spots to escape its dry scholarly tone. Holds lots of surprises (for those like me who are not well versed in relgious studies) about the fluidity of early christianity as well as what is now called Nordic mythology. An interesting aside about the travels of the "True Cross" and how the Cross changed from being it's own empowered entity into a static symbol was fascinating. Well worth fighting through it's drier moments.
