Reproduction of a Viking Age crucifix found in Birka, Sweden. The original find can be found in the Swedish History Museum under inventory no. SHM34000

Product number: 3287

The conversion to Christianity of the Scandinavian people took place during the Viking Age. The change was propelled forth by Viking kings who saw a political benefit from the new faith. Archaeological finds suggest that the two faiths co-existed for centuries. Contrary to popular belief, many raiding Vikings were Christian by the end of the Viking Age, since raiding was about business - not faith.
