Record #84298:

Valistuksen Lapin-kuvia / Seija Virkkula.

Title: Valistuksen Lapin-kuvia / Seija Virkkula.
Translated title: The Enlightenment image of Lapland.
Author(s): Virkkula, Seija.
Date: 1986.
Language: Finnish.
In: Faravid. (1986.), Vol. 10 (1986)
Abstract: Saami came to be depicted as distinct and very fortunate folk, closely tied to Nature by their way of life. Numerous views of them among Norwegian (engaged in border demarcation with Sweden), Swedish (weakened by war and losing territory), Finnish (who recognised linguistic connections) and other writers are described. Saami religion and magic interested scientists, while in Scandinavia missions were started. Sweden's plight led to stepped up economic development of northern land. Although many survive from before and after it, few travel accounts are left from this period.
