Paranormal Encounters in Iceland 1150-1400

Herausgegeben von Ármann Jakobsson und Miriam Mayburd. Englisch. Berlin, 2019. 458 S., 2 sw. Abb., 23,0 cm. (The Northern Medieval World: On the Margins of Europe) Geb

This anthology brings together articles by several scholars engaged in the study of the many manifestations of the paranormal in the Middle Ages. The guiding principles of the collection are a clear focus on the parnormal experiences themselves, and, essentially, how they are defined by the sources. The authors work with a variety of medieval Icelandic sources, including family sagas, legendary sagas, romances, poetry, hagiography and miracles, exploring the variedness of paranormal activity in the medieval North. This volume questions all previous definitions of the subject matter, most decisively the idea of saga realism, and will open up new avenues in saga research.<br></span>
