Many reenactors are keen to portray non-Christian characters. This category is intended to help them do so.

Popular histories often present Scandinavian religion before the conversion as though it were relatively uniform and systematised. While this helps to communicate the key ideas, it is probably misleading, as the evidence suggests a good deal of variation - this was not a unified, dogmatic faith but an imprecise and varied set of beliefs.

It is also important that we're aware of the ebb and flow of the conversion of Scandinavia to Christianity.
