Hedniska spår : En studie av utvalda runstenar i Södermanland

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för arkeologi och antikens kultur

Sammanfattning: The raising of the runestones occurred during a complex period related to Christianity´s establishment in Scandinavia. The breaking point between the old Nordic and Christian religion has often been treated as clear-cut. Defining a period or material culture into one or the other religion is too simple and becomes problematic when a previously established (worldview) religion has been alive and permeated throughout society. This paper aims to illustrate the complexity of this period by studying runestones in Södermanland with pagan symbols. The runestones will be examined together with their context.
