Abstract

This two-volume special issue of Religionsvidenskabeligt Tidsskrift (no. 74), titled The Wild Hunt for Numinous Knowledge: Perspectives on and from the Study of Pre-Christian Nordic Religion in honour of Jens Peter Schjødt, is a festschrift for Jens Peter Schjødt on the occasion of his 70th birthday on the 24th March 2022. Edited by Ka-ren Bek-Pedersen, Sophie Bønding, Luke John Murphy, Simon Nygaard, and Morten Warmind, it presents studies of pre-Christian Nordic religions that explicitly exper-iment with and reflect on their theoretical framework and methods, as well as stud-ies that are based more broadly in the Study of Religion, but which relate to the study of pre-Christian Nordic religions in different ways. It thus seeks to honour the full breadth of Jens Peter’s research and to evoke a productive dialogue between researchers who use different approaches to the same material and the same ap-proaches to different materials, grouping thematically-similar studies in a number of sections. As such, this collection offers not only a wide range of ground-breaking studies of many aspects of pre-Christian Nordic religions, but also demonstrates the benefits of methodically-conscious study of the early medieval Nordic region more generally, as well as the relevance of this field to the Study of Religion broadly speaking.
