The advent of a new religious faith is always a valuable historical tool. Shits in religion uncover interesting aspects of the societies involved. This is particularly true when an indigenous, national faith is supplanted by an alien one externally introduced. Such is the case in medieval Scandinavia, when Norse paganism was ousted by Latin Christianity.
