een kijk op Friese geschiedenis
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4c4g7BanSo Pre-Christian Paganism in Early-Medieval Frisia | UiO Student Conference 2023 In the Early Middle Ages, Frisia in its broadest extent was the geographic area encompassing the coastal areas of parts of Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and into Denmark. Culturally and linguistically close to Anglo-Saxon England and the Norse in Scandinavia, the question of what religion was observed in Frisia before the arrival of Christianity along with the Carolingian Frankish conquests starting in 719 AD with the death of King Redbad is a particularly interesting one. In this video, I'll look at what we can glean from historical, linguistic, and archaeological sources about pre-Christian religion in Frisia during this time as part of the First UiO Student Conference on Pre-Christian Religion hosted by students of the Viking and Medieval program at the University of Oslo.
