The Song of Hild

(Övrigt)
Beskrivning:

This is a gritty, powerful story about the prominent role women played in the spread of Christianity in seventh-century Britain.

Abbess Hild of Whitby was an extraordinary woman living in extraordinary times. In this exquisite translation of the #1 Danish bestselling novel Hildas sang, we are drawn into a world of dark dealings, powerful patriarchy and religious wrangling.

In the political and religious upheavals of the seventh-century British Isles, tensions between the Danish-German invaders and native Celts mirror the power struggles masquerading as religious struggles that reverberate internationally today. In The Song of Hild we are brought face-to-face with the political manoeuvres of conflicting religions, the building of a double monastery, and the power exercised by the Church of Rome.

"a bestseller of great literary quality" - Ekstra Bladet (from a review of the original Danish edition)
