    Förhistoriska bilder som religionsvetenskaplig källa: Några kriterier att beakta vid tolkningar av religionsikonografiskt material2011In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 65-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A challenge when interpreting prehistoric art is that we often lack written source material, a contemporary text written by people who lived in the cultural context that is studied. It is therefore not uncommon to use texts that are younger than the material that we want to interpret. This could lead to misinterpretations and circular arguments. Images are cultural products formed by their contemporaries and influenced by older idea traditions. This article presents four criteria that might be worth taking into consideration when interpreting prehistoric religious iconography. The article discusses how one might proceed to study prehistoric religious art and what could be helpful to keep in mind when analyzing religions by means of pictures and material culture.

    Identitet och verksamhet: Hjulbärande gudinnor och attribut i mellaneuropeisk järnåldersikonografi2015In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 64, no 2, p. 53-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the difference between identifying and classifying attributes and analyzes the problematic implications if we confuse the two. The empirical material consists of Gallic stone reliefs depicting goddesses with a wheel as attribute. Male deities depicted with wheels have mainly been identified as a Celtic Jupiter or a male sky god sometimes called Taranis. The Gallic goddesses show that the wheel attribute was not an identifying attribute exclusive to this god, but that it rather served as a marker for an activity shared by several deities, both male and female. The articles argument that we need to distinguish between identifying and classifying attributes in order to make a source critical and methodological correct iconographical interpretation, especially when we interpret iconographical representation without the aid of any written sources.

    Names of swords in Icelandic sagas2017In: EASR Annual Conference : Communicating Religion: University of Leuven 18-21 September 2017, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Named weapons of different origin and purpose occur in the Old Norse mythology, and some of them are better known than others: Thor's hammer Mjolnir and Odin's spear Gungnir, just to name a few. But named weapons are also present in the more mundane Icelandic sagas, and it suggests that the practice of giving individual names to objects was something that occurred among real people in the Viking society. The named swords, spears and axes, which we can read about in the Icelandic sagas, are not portrayed as especially supernatural. They are, however, sometimes talked about in a special way and considered to be extraordinary in one way or another.What kind of name did people give to weapons, and what might have been the purposes for doing so? It is possible that some weapons told a story through their names and that they because of that also brought fame and glory to their owners. It is also conceivable, considered how some of the swords and spears are described in the Icelandic sagas, that named weapons were seen as almost life-like. This paper discusses some thoughts regarding named weapons in the sagas, the purposes for giving names, and if this practise might tell us something about how people in the Viking age viewed these named, possibly presumed life-like, objects.

    Ariska idoler: Den indoeuropeiska mytologin som ideologi och vetenskap2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By using ancient texts, medieval documents, philological observations, and archaeological artifacts, scholars have reconstructed a prehistorical world and religion. The people who upheld this culture have been named, inter alia, "Indo-Europeans", "Aryans", "Japhetites" and "Wiros". Yet, these people have not left any texts, no artifacts can with certainty be ascribed to them, nor do we know any individual "Indo-European" by name. Despite this, scholars have, with help from daring historical, linguistic and archaeological reconstructions, persistently tried to reach the ancient Indo-Europeans in hopes of finding the foundations for their own culture and religion. The main hypothesis of this thesis is that these pre-historical peoples have not occupied modern man because they were important as historical agents, but because they were, with the words of Claude Lévi-Strauss, "good to think". The interest in "the Indo-Europeans", "the Aryans" and their "Others" — which latter group has at times been described as Jews, Savages, Orientals, Aristocrats, priests, matriarchal farmers, martial pastoralists, French liberals, and/or German nationalists — was (and still is) motivated by a wish to construct alternatives to those identities given by tradition. The study of the Indo-Europeans, their culture and religion, has been a way to produce new concepts, new identities and thus an alternative future. Chapter 1 describes how the concept of an Indo-European entity evolved during the 18th and 19th centuries out of speculations on the identity of different people mentioned in the Bible, out of the discovery of similarities between Indic and European languages, and out of romantic ideas about race and Volk. Chapter 2 deals with the first paradigm in the Indo-European studies, the Nature-Mythological school, and its relationship to Christianity, anti-Semitism and liberal-bourgeois mentality. Chapter 3 discusses the "primitivization" of the "Indo-Europeans" that developt at the end of the 19th century due to nationalism and vitalistic philosophy. Chapter 4 analyses the relationship between the study of Indo-Germanic or Aryan religion in the Third Reich and Nazi ideology. Chapter 5 treats theories that were created as alternative to Nazi scholarship by fascist, Catholic scholars. That chapter also deals with the developments in the study of Indo-European religion and culture during the last half of the 20th century

    Greed and the nature of evil: Tolkien versus Wagner2010In: Journal of Religion and Popular Culture, ISSN 1703-289X, E-ISSN 1703-289X, Vol. 22, no 2, p. Article ID: 7-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars studying J.R.R. Tolkien have often chosen to ignore the influence of Richard Wagner on Tolkien’s opus. This article starts out with showing how profound this influence was and continues by analysing Tolkien’s and Wagner’s common interest in the Old Norse Mythology of the Vikings. Examining the recently published The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún by Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, the author penetrates and compares the importante themes of greed and evilness in these books and in Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen. The author takes up for discussion the radically different politic views of the two artists and indicates how this is important for their respective view of power and greed.

    Humanistisk religionsforskning: En otydlig tradition belyst av "Arbetets riddare"2013In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 2, no 60, p. 9-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The humanistic tradition within the study of regligions has currently lost much of its identity. It could be argued that it is in fact about to be devoured by approaches taken over from the social and antural sciences. By discussing some features that through the last 150 years have been seen as a typical for a humanistic methodology, and a couple of more idiosyncratic features, the author aims to initiate a discussion whether a humanistic study of religion is obsolete, or if it still is something wort preserving and developing. The arguments are supported by examples taken from the 19th century American Christian-socialist fraternity The Noble and Holy Order of the Knights of Labor.

    Morgonrodnad: Socialismens stil och mytologi 1871-19142016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Socialismen är den ideologiska rörelse som troligen haft snabbast spridning över världen någonsin. Sedan 1800-talets mitt har den satt avtryck inte bara på politikens och det sociala livets domäner, utan även på konst, litteratur, religion och livsåskådning. Många har beskrivit socialismens rationella sidor, men ingen rörelse blir mäktig utan att sätta hjärtan i brand. I Morgonrodnad. Socialismens stil och mytologi 1871–1914 får vi återupptäcka en romantisk och mytisk sida hos socialismen där Jesus är en större hjälte än Marx och strävan efter ”det vackra” är ett argument för det klasslösa samhället. Religionshistorikern Stefan Arvidsson beskriver först socialisternas bruk av myter och historier i konst och propaganda, och fördjupar sig sedan i den kulturella stil som dominerade rörelsen runt förra sekelskiftet. Idealen spåras här till det mäktiga amerikanska ordenssällskapet The Holy and Noble Order of the Knights of Labor. Samtidigt försökte konstnärer i Europa skapa en helt ny socialistisk kultur som skulle förvandla livets alla sysslor till ”skön konst”.

    The Style and mythology of socialism: Socialist idealism, 1871-19142017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Arguably no modern ideology has diffused as fast as socialism. From the mid-nineteenth century to the last quarter of the twentieth, socialist ideals played a crucial part not only in the political sphere, but also influenced the way people worked and played, thought and felt, designed and decorated, hoped and yearned. By proposing general observations on the relationship between socialism, imagination, myth and utopia, as well as bringing the late nineteenth century socialist culture – a culture imbued with Biblical narratives, Christian symbols, classic mythology, rituals from freemasonry, Viking romanticism, and utopian speculations – together under the novel term ‘socialist idealism’, The Style and Mythology of Socialism: Socialist Idealism, 1871–1914 draws attention to the symbolic, artistic and rhetorical ways that socialism originally set the hearts of people on fire.

    “Whatever he discovers in creatures he guides to the Creator”: En studie om hur vi kan förstå St. Franciskus som miljömedveten, A study of how we can understand St. Francis as being environmentally conscious2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigated how we can understand St. Francis as environmentally conscious. The study also presents where those elements can be found in St. Francis own documents and from documents that describe St. Francis. The study also investigate what factors in 13th-century European society might have influenced such ideas.

    St. Francis of Assisi had a reverent attitude towards all animals and plants. He helped and took care of animals that were weak and vulnerable. He did this because he believed by doing so, they would praise the Lord. He considered some creatures more important than others because they reminded him of the Lord, for example the lamb. He thought long-term, instructing his brothers that they should not cut down a whole tree so that the tree could sprout again. He was environmentally conscious, even though this was because of God and not because he had actual concern for animals and plants themselves. He might have been conscious about the environment because of all the wars that destroyed fields. It might also have been because of the general exploitation of the forest, or a reaction against the Cathars and their negative thoughts about the material world.

    Abstract [en]

    Indulgence – a frequently misunderstood phenomenon in the medieval Church.

    This paper has a didactic purpose. An often heard misconception concerning the medieval Catholic Church is that forgiving of sins could be bought for money. This opinion is the result of misconceptions of the phenomenon of indulgence. In the paper, indulgence is discussed and explained in the context of the sacrament of Penance. Examples are cited from late medieval Scandinavia. The focus is on practice, while theological and judicial aspects are dealt with cursorily. Martin Luther’s critical discussion of indulgence in his 95 theses from 1517 exemplifies the critique directed towards the late medieval sale of indulgence. Finally, some modern Swedish schoolbooks in Religion and History are examined in order to see if misconceptions of medieval indulgence are still in vigour.

    Abstract [en]

    By focusing the prayer life of medieval peasant communities, Viktor Aldrin has chosen an original theme for his PhD thesis. Few medieval catechetic handbooks or other religious writs deal explicitly with members of the peasant community. More rewarding are miracle collections of various saints, in which it is not unusual to come across peasant men and women, who pray with their own words, with no clergyman present. Prayers were learnt by imitating other praying people, for example godparents, and by participating in liturgy.

    Abstract [sv]

    I ett tal på urfolksdagen 1998 bad den svenska jordbruksministern om ursäkt för hur

    Sverige behandlat samerna. Det är idag allt mer vanligt att regeringar och organisationer

    ber om ursäkt för handlingar i det förflutna, både i Sverige och runt om i världen.

    Sannings- och försoningskommissioner söker komma till rätta med arvet efter historiska

    övergrepp genom att lyfta fram dem i ljuset. Men vad innebar egentligen denna

    ursäkt till samerna och för vems räkning talade ministern? Artikeln behandlar ursäkter

    som framförts till andra urfolk, vad som skrevs i media i anslutning till att den svenska

    ursäkten framfördes och hur den sen diskuterats och använts. En motivering till behovet

    av ursäkter söks i förflutna handlingar som betraktas i ljuset av samtida internationella

    överenskommelser om urfolks rättigheter. En slutsats är att en verkningsfull ursäkt måste

    ta konsekvensen av hela kedjan mellan oförrätter, ånger, gottgörelse och en förändrad

    relation mellan grupper. För svensk-samiskt vidkommande borde det innebära att frågor

    om rättelse för bland annat tvångsförflyttningar och förnekandet av samiskt språk och

    kultur måste diskuteras och internationella konventioner skrivas under och förbättras.

    Sådana handlingar skulle ha djupgående inflytande på nationens historia och tjäna som

    modell för relationer till andra nationella minoriteter. Den nya berättelse som en ursäkt

    innebär, möjliggör en framtid som inte är förutbestämd av det förflutna.

    Kolonisation och kulturmöten under 1600- och 1700-talen2016In: De historiska relationerna mellan Svenska kyrkan och samerna: En vetenskaplig antologi, band 1 / [ed] Daniel Lindmark, Olle Sundström, Skellefteå: Artos & Norma bokförlag, 2016, p. 241-282Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att använda termen kolonialism om svensk expansion på Nordkalotten väcker

    debatt inom akademin samt i lagstiftning och politik. Från och med 1600-talet

    stärkte kyrkan och kronan sin närvaro i lappmarkerna, och i försöken att omvända

    vad som betraktades som en hednisk och ociviliserad befolkning nedtecknade

    svenska präster och protokollskrivare samiska berättelser och anspråk. Genom

    dessa dokument framträder en historia om kolonisation och kulturmöten i Sápmi.

    Denna artikel berättar om hur samer och svenskar påverkades av möten under

    1600- och 1700-talen och bygger på källmaterial som domböcker, prästberättelser

    och reseskildringar. I fokus står kronans och kyrkans allt starkare intrång i samiskt

    område genom gruvverksamhet och etablering av marknadsplatser dit handel,

    tingsförrättningar och kyrkliga ärenden koncentrerades. Särskild betoning läggs på

    den kyrkliga organisationen och de krav den ställde på samer. Genom kyrkan nådde

    kronans krav in i varje enskild samisk individs liv och innebar allvarliga ingrepp i den

    samiska livsvärlden. Samiska reaktioner innefattade försök att begränsa den information

    som gavs till svenskar om samisk kultur och tro, såväl som aktivt motstånd

    genom att vägra sända barn till skolan eller genom att flytta över gränsen till Norge.

    Särskilt tydligt märks konflikten mellan samiskt och svenskt i kyrkans och kronans

    ansträngningar att kontrollera de samiska äktenskapen.

    A Fight over Souls: Documentary Films on the Rwandan Genocide with a Christian Theme2017In: Journal of Religion and Film, ISSN 1092-1311, E-ISSN 1092-1311, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 1-40, article id 14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda have spawned over 150 feature films and feature-length documentaries, making it into the second most audio-visually recreated genocide after the Holocaust. Within this large body of historical films a subgenre have emerged with a distinctive Christian theme. This article explores these Christian themed documentary films about the Rwandan genocide and positions them within a film historical perspective as well as analyzes and contextualizes them as a subgenre of films about the Rwandan genocide within films about genocide in general. Of note are how memory and historiography are used, and the links between these films’ educational, religious, and commercial elements.

    Religiositet och opinion om konflikten i Mellanöstern2006In: Tro & Liv: Tidskrift för kristen tro och förkunnelse, ISSN 0346-2803, Vol. 65, no 2, p. 4-20Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln om personer i dagens Sverige låter religiositet ha samband med opinionen om Israel och PLO: uppträdande i Mellanöstern? För att teoretiskt stödja förekomsten av ett sådant samband redovisas varför religion skall inverka på opinion om parterna i Mellanösternkonflikten. Teorierna beaktar socialisation, kognition och affektion, samt religiösa orienteringars substansiella budskap i form av värden. Studien koncentrerar sig därför på tre frågeställningar. 1. Finns det något samband mellan religiöst engagemang och svensk opinion om Israel och PLO? 2. Kan ett eventuellt samband mellan religiöst engagemang och opinion om Mellanöstern förklaras av evangelikala värden? 3. Har sambandet mellan religiöst engagemang och opinion om Israel och PLO förändrats under de senaste 25 åren? Undersökningsmaterialet består av SOM-institutets representativa frågeundersökningar av den svenska befolkningen år 1986, 1991 och 2004. Resultatet visar att religiositet inverkar på svensk opinion om Mellanösternkonfliktens parter: religiöst engagemang har samband med ökat stöd för Israel. Däremot är det låga stödet för PLO obereonde av religiöst engagemang. Det visar även att personer som innehar evangelikala värden stödjer Israel i större utsträckning än andra religiösa personer utan evangelikala värden i så stor utsträckning att evangelikala värden kan förklara hela sambandet mellan religiöst engagemang och stöd för Israel. Stödet för Israel minskar dock i alla grupper mellan 1986-2004 oavsett religiositet och religiös värden. Den enhetliga förändringen av stödet till Israel antas därmed ha sitt ursprung i händelser i Mellanöstern som påverkar alla oavsett religiositet, inte i förändringar bland grupper i Sverige med olika religiositet.

    För Sverige i tiden?: En studie om den svenska monarkins relation till samhället och sekulariseringsprocessen mellan 1858-20122013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Christendom has under a long period of time in Swedish history been the central component in legitimating the monarchs' power, a continuous process than can be clearly observed through the customs of royal coronation and baptism rites. However, during the 20th century those close ties between the state and the church of Sweden have been dissolving at a steady rate, alongside a growing societal democratization and modernization process. Officially the monarch still had a clear constitutional power legitimated through the transcendent, but unofficially his power was in reality heavily reduced. How do the Swedish monarchy relate to a rapidly changing society and secularization process? This pilot study investigates this relation by analyzing the news reports of the royal coronation and baptism rites between 1858 and 2012 from two leading newspapers, Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter. Principally two sides of the monarchy could be identified, one slow changing external side with a close connection with the national identity through history, religion and tradition, and a more swift and growing internal side with a clear connection with the ordinary citizen, family values and social norms. In conclusion the Swedish monarchy seemed to have progressed from a clear sacral foundation to a more family oriented development.

    Abstract [en]

    Sikhism is one of the most important religious traditions of South Asian origin.Sikhs are historically connected to the Punjab region in South Asia, but their religious traditions are transnational and have a worldwide presence. The study of their history and traditions has become a significant field of scholarship and research, but no academic, authoritative, and up-to-date reference work exists. Brill’s Encyclopedia of Sikhism aims to make available in-depth critical scholarship on all the main aspects of the Sikh traditions in a number of original essays written by the world's foremost scholars on Sikhs and Sikh traditions.

    The encyclopedia is thematic and seeks to present a balanced and impartial view of the Sikh traditions in all their multiplicity and as both historical and contemporary institutions. The articles, published in two volumes, focus on history, literature, and the rich social landscape of the Sikh community; their practices, places, arts, and performances; specialists and leadership; migration both within South Asia and beyond; and contemporary issues and relations.
