"Odějme Tóra v nevěsty úbor!" O genderových stereotypech severské společnosti v době Vikingské éry

Lenka Doová


This article, based on Scandinavian narrative sources (tha sagas), skaldic and eddic poetry as well as medieval law-codes, presents a particular view of the Scandinavian gender history during the Viking Age. Scandinavian historiographies have paid attention to gender studies for several last decades, specially to long time neglected women´s history. However, this contribution focuses on the dominant male element of the Viking society and seeks answers to questions like „How the Viking Age society defines manhood and man´s characteristic behaviour?“, „What kind of act or social position had been abominated by Norse society?“ or „Had the social roles been determined by biological bindings?“.
