Murder and Vengeance among the Gods. Baldr in Scandinavian Mythology
Finnish Academy of Science and Letters
FF Communications 262
Vammala 1997, 210 pp.
THE DEATH OF BALDR and its aftermath comprise the central moment of Scandinavian mythology. This book attempts to make sense of that story in the context of its thirteenth century recording by paying close attention to the texts themselves rather than to hypothetical background in cult or ritual. It elucidates both the literary and probable socio-historical context, and in connection with the latter it draws special attention to the fact that Baldr's story does not end with his death but always involves acts of vengeance, thus suggesting an involvement with bloodfeud.
