Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia is a book from Varg Vikernes, a controversial musician and the mastermind behind one of the most acclaimed Black Metal bands in the world Burzum. Vikernes spent 15yrs studying the traditions and beliefs of the Ancient Scandinavians and their influence on modern Europeans. That research has culminated in a book in which the outspoken author challenges many of the widely held views of contemporary culture and its history. The passionate and in-depth text provides an absorbing insight into the thoughts of Vikernes. Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia makes fascinating reading and will be of interest not only to Black Metal and Burzum fans, but also to those with an interest in Norse mythology or European history and social commentators.
