:The popular image of the Vikings is of tall red-headed men, raping and pillaging their way around the coast of Europe, stopping only to ransack monasteries and burn longships. But the violent Vikings of the 8th century became the pious Christians of the 11th century, who gave gold crosses to Christian churches and in whose areas of rule pagan idols were destroyed and churches were built. So how did this radical transformation happen, and why? What difference did it make to the Vikings, and to those around them, and what is their legacy today? This book takes a 'global' look at this key period in Viking history, exploring all the major areas of Viking settlement. Written to be an accessible and engaging overview for the general reader.

  • <p>the Forgotten Story Of The &amp;lsquo;christian Vikings&amp;rsquo; We Are All Familiar With The Fierce Pagan Warriors That Burst Out Of Scandinavia During The Eighth Century, Plundering, Ravaging And Shedding Blood Wherever They Went. A Lesser-known Fact About These Infamous Pillagers Is That The Majority Converted To Christianity In The Centuries That Followed. In England, Children Of The Vikings Who Had Martyred The Christian King Of East Anglia Minted Coins Extolling His Holiness. In Normandy The Pagans Became Loyal Supporters Of The Catholic Church. In The East The Former Raiders Founded The First Russian State And Converted To Orthodox Christianity. Martyn And Hannah Whittock Suggest That The Vikings Had As Much Impact As Converts As They Did As Deadly Marauders. So How And Why Did This Radical Transformation Happen, And What Is Their Legacy Today?</p>
