Reincarnation among the Norse

Written by Bil Linzie

About this book

Year of first publication: 2006

This short article looks at the possibilty of reincarnation as a common alternative concept of life after death among Germanic heathens and then as a possible non-standard alternative belief. References in the Old Norse literary record are reviewed and compared to data from the non-Norse literary and historical record and finally the archaeological record. The evidence is then sorted to propose a model to explain the existence of the belief in the Eddas.
