Abstract [en]

Numerous amulets from the Scandinavian Middle Ages mention álfar, demons, or Seven Sisters, which need to be conjured to avert illnesses form the bearer of the amulet. This paper attempts to shed some light on the question of what sort of illnesses were actually meant by closely looking at the amulets’ texts and parallels from medieval manuscripts from all over Europe.

A response to the chapter is submitted by Olof Sundqvist.
