Once again, the sharpest contrast between the style of life imposed by the christian religion and norse is still a great protagonist of this episode, showing up in the fund as well as the dictates of such doctrines lead those who practice it to behave according to the moral codes are very different between them.

HEAVEN AND HELL

The episode opens by showing us a girl who lives in a peaceful house located within a small village; we understand immediately that the large family who lives there along with that girl is to the christian religion by two fundamental elements: the first is the fact that the young woman feels guilty for something that hides inside the trunk of a tree (farther in the course of the episode you will find out what the celi and the reason why you feel so worn out by a sense of guilt, that is linked to the concept of mortal sin, typical of the christian religion), while the second relates to the discourses and to a specific prayer that you can listen inside the house of his family.

The climate is decidedly relaxed, even if the father of the family, warns his relatives from sin with terrible words: only by following the dictates of Jesus Christ, and avoiding falling into temptation, it is possible to secure a place in Paradise, while to deviate, even if very little, from this designated way will inevitably lead to the soul of a sinner to burn for ever in the flames of Hell, where you will be tortured for eternity by the Demons that therein reside.

Of course, these concepts are almost completely foreign to the Danes, headed by the traitor Killed, for which there is a own version of Hell, even if a bit different, but, according to some experts, influenced by the christian: the Náströnd (literally “Bank of the Dead”) is a beach on the shore of which are punished and tortured those guilty of adultery, perjury and murder. While, therefore, for Christians there are endless ways to finish off the Interior, for the Vikings, there are only three; another interesting detail is the fact that the sin that is considered the most vile, both for their betrayal, which is a further point of contact with certain interpretations of Christianity: for example, the cristianissimo Dates Alighieri places in the group stage, the lowest of his conception of Hell, the betrayers, with Judas, Brutus and Cassius are placed in the most infamous of all, the Giudecca, where are punished those who, for Dante, the sinners, the worst of all, that the traitors of benefactors; the eternal punishment of the three is to be devoured in eternal from the three mouths of Lucifer.

Because, as we already know well, the only way to get to the Norse Paradise, Valhalla, is to die with honor on the field of battle, and the Vikings do not have to follow a myriad of rules and limitations, but is enough to get killed in battle.

The differences between these two cults are abysmal, to the point that those who practise them unable not only to understand the beliefs of others, but even to conceive it that christians ask themselves how can be so cruel and wicked without fear of the judgment of God, while for the norse, it is absurd not to fight to defend themselves and their loved ones, and worship of a divine figure slight and dying nailed to a cross.

Therefore, on the one hand, we have a religious cult that preaches peace and submission, and condemns the violence, while the other is a religion which instead enhances certain violence as a manifestation of courage and strength.

In the light of these elements, it is also easy to give a simple answer to a simple question: what happens when a group of Vikings decide to put under siege to a village inhabited by Christians?
