Sterbeinschriften auf wikingerzeitlichen Runensteinen
[Death Inscriptions on Runic Stones: A Study of Viking Era Inscriptions About Death and Dying]
Aims and Scope
Köster investigates the subject of death and dying as depicted on Scandinavian runic stones from the Viking era. Her study calls into question our conventional understanding of the function of these inscriptions, showing that runic inscriptions were not limited to epigraphs, but were also prepared more generally for individuals who were still alive.
