This work consists of over 70 papers written by scholars concerned with pre-Christian Norse religion.

The articles represent subjects such as archaeology, art history, historical archaeology, history, history of ideas, theological history, literature, onomastics, Scandinavian languages, and Scandinavian studies.

This characteristic reflects the interdisciplinary aim of the conference and also the book.

The idea was to bring together text-based and material-based researchers to improve scholarly exchange and dialogue.

The variety on the contributions elucidate topics as worldview and cosmology, ritual and religious practice, myth and memory as well as reception and present-day use of old Norse religion.
