Fredrik Gregorius

Fredrik Gregorius is Senior Lecturer at  Linköping University. His primary research area is the use and reception of Old Norse religion, from the Gothicism of the Swedish Empire to contemporary Norse Pagan religions. He has also conducted research on apocalyptic Christian movements in the United States, modern Satanism and neo-Paganism. This research has been oriented towards the reception of religious concepts and how these have changed over time and place, due to political and social motives. Gregorius is currently working within the research project Back to Blood: Pursuing a Future from the Norse Past, a research collaboration between Linköping University and University of Stavanger, Norway. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. His project is titled: The Landscape of the gods: Negotiating the role of place and meaning in Viking archaeological sites and museums and deals with how places associated with Old Norse religion have been used throughout history.
