The gods-allusions on Vikings are really starting to take over… I just watched a preview for the next episode that basically said explicitely that we’re supposed to see Floki as Loki. That would make Helga Sigyn (they may live in the forest but I think she’s more Sigyn than Angrboda). Ragnar is a stand-in for Odin, Björn is, apparently, Baldur (I would have equated him more with Thor), Lagertha is clearly Freyja (independent, warlike and has her own army, likes cats and gold, very beautiful) - and Aslaug is Frigg (she’s domestic, can see the future and has a lot of children).

If Floki is Loki and Ragnar is Odin, maybe Athelstan is Jesus and everything is gonna get real weird on Vikings.

He’s got the stigmata and the White!Jesus looks.

Lagertha's career as a warrior began when Frø, king of Sweden, invaded Norway and killed the Norwegian king Siward. Frø put the women of the dead king's family into a brothel for public humiliation. Hearing of this, Ragnar Lodbrok came with an army to avenge his grandfather Siward. Many of the women Frø had ordered abused dressed themselves in men's clothing and fought on Ragnar's side. Chief among them, and key to Ragnar's victory, was Lagertha. Saxo recounts:

"Ladgerda, a skilled Amazon, who, though a maiden, had the courage of a man, and fought in front among the bravest with her hair loose over her shoulders. All-marveled at her matchless deeds, for her locks flying down her back betrayed that she was a woman." x

I’ve never quite understood mandatory attendance policies at universities. The students are paying to be educated, and if the students can still perform well without attending class, why should they be punished for not attending all of the classes? Unless the class regularly grades on in-class activities that require attendance, students should be free to come to class to get the information that the professor is lecturing about or not. I can’t help but feel that mandatory attendance policies in lecture-based classes are purely related to the professor’s ego.
