"But that was not all: there was a dozen or more devils and ghosts there, all playing merry hell, screaming, belching flames, vomiting forth their entrails and throwing their heads about" (p. 30).

"They dared not but let him have his own way in all things, though they were often filled with horror" (p. 24).

I am especially fond of the stories of Saemund the Learned, and the story called "The Soul of My Man Jon", in which a widow personally ensures that her husband's soul gets into heaven.
