Bridges between Worlds

Spirits and Spirit Work in Northern Iceland

Corinne G. Dempsey

  • The first comprehensive look at ancient Icelandic spirit traditions as they live on today
  • A study of trance and healing practices from a European perspective
  • An approach to the supernatural that is neither confessional nor dismissive, striking a balance that is ultimately humanizing
