Orm og Tyr

4.41  ·  Rating Details ·  17 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Orm og tyr er en fortryllende og langsommelig fortælling om forfædres tro, skrevet i 1952. Hans natur- og landskabsbeskrivelser opfordrer til en opdagelsesrejse i Danmark, hvor gamle hellige træer og stendysser stadig kan opsøges.

På næsten 400 sider beskriver forfatteren steder, der vidner om svundne epoker før kristendommens sejr i norden. "Orm og tyr" er ikke en alminde

Great read if you are interested in the pre-history of religion in Denmark/Scandinavia, and the beginning of christianity. I read it mainly because I think Martin A. Hansen has a fantastic language (if you read it in a different languate, I would think the quality of the translation is very important). It's by no means a scientific monograph, but has some interesting reflections on what the beliefs of prehistoric Scandinavia might have been, and what they would have meant for the culture.
