AbstractThe second session examines how the space of Europe's far north became imprinted with identities, and the relation of these identities to the physical and conceptual landscape. The first paper compares diverging traditions in the relationship between morality, the climate of the north, and its peoples in the late 11th and early 12th centuries. The second examines the formation of Swedish Christian identity through the lens of shaming in hagiographic texts. The third looks at the mapping of viking activity and settlement in the Nore and Suir rivers in south-eastern Ireland.
