Description American scholar Jefferson F. Calico is focusing on the study of American Ásatrú modern Pagan movement. His longstanding research is compiled into monography "Being Viking : Heathenism in contemporary America." He is not the first one who entered the field of the study of American Ásatrú since early nineties (e.g., Check Jeffrey Kaplan, „Odinism and Ásatrú“, in: id., Radical Religion in America: Millenarian Movements from the Far Right to the Children Of Noah, New York: Syracuse University Press 1997, 69-99; Jennifer Snooke American Heathens: Politics of Identity in a Pagan Religious Movement, Philadelphia: Temple University Press 2015). What is Calico's contribution to the growing field of the Pagan Studies? How does "Being Viking : Heathenism in contemporary America" broaden the scientific knowledge of the American Ásatrú?
