Sheep and goat in Norse Paganism

Jennbert, Kristina LU (2004) In Pecus : man and animal in antiquity : proceedings of the conference at the Swedish institute in Rome 1. p.160-166
Abstract
Sheep and goats are some of the most important animals in prehistoric

Scandinavia. The habitus of the animals was used and transformed into

cultural categories. Owing to their important and long-term utility they

were ritualised during the pre-Christian periods. The role of these animals

and the attitudes towards them in and beyond Norse paganism is

discussed with habitus perspectives applied to the animals themselves

and to the field of modern research.
