The Nordic folklore has its sources mainly from old Icelandic poems (Íslendingasögur), but also the Finnish poems (Kalevala) and Muittalus Samid birra. Slightly more scientific work are the 19th c. 'fragments from North Scandinavia', where shamanistic elements are further investigated: Theory of Gods (Gudalära), Theory of Sacrifice (Offerlära), Theory of Prophecy (Spådomslära) and Saami sagas.
