Santiago Barreiro – Dragões e Tesouros no Norte Medieval

Abstract: “How were dragons represented in the medieval North? In this seminar, we will consider how these mythical beasts are understood in the Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon imagination, focusing on four modes of representation: first, the dragon as a source of fear; second, its role as a figuration of the devil; third, the dragon in its serpentine nature; finally, and more importantly, the dragon’s relationship with hoarding.”
