Summary: "Winroth (Yale), an authority on medieval canon law, has penned a literate, intelligent synthesis of how economic change in Scandinavia during the Viking Age (780-1100) led to the reception of Christianity. . . . Scholars and students alike will read this work with profit. Excellent bibliography."K.W. Harl, Choice. Bookseller Inventory #
In this book a MacArthur Award-winning scholar argues for a radically new interpretation of the conversion of Scandinavia from paganism to Christianity in the early Middle Ages. Overturning the received narrative of Europe's military and religious conquest and colonization of the region, Anders Winroth contends that rather than acting as passive recipients, Scandinavians converted to Christianity because it was in individual chieftains' political, economic, and cultural interests to do so.
Through a painstaking analysis and historical reconstruction of both archeological and literary sources, and drawing on scholarly work that has been unavailable in English, Winroth opens up new avenues for studying European ascendency and the expansion of Christianity in the medieval period.
About the Author: Anders Winroth, the Forst Family Professor of History at Yale, is the author of The Making of Gratian's "Decretum," for which he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003.
