Virgin Spring Reaction
It appears that one of the themes of the movie is the conflict between Norse mythology and Christianity. The family is Christian and Ingeri follows Norse mythology. I think that this difference in religion helps to show what Sweden was like during the conversion to Christianity. From what I have read and heard, it was almost like one day Sweden wasn't Christian and the next day Christianity was the official religion. So, some Swedes converted right away and other Swedes had no idea Christianity existed. The two religions both remained side by side for many years after the official conversion.
