📙 Faith and Magic in Early Modern Finland by Raisa Maria Toivo (auth.) — free epub


While early modern Finland was Lutheran in theory, a religious plurality – embodied in ceremonies and rituals and interpreted as magic – flourished. Unorthodox and superstitious practices merged with catechism hearings and sermon preaching among the laity. This book details how western and eastern influences manifested themselves in Finnish magic.
