Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats är resultatet av en studie som genomförts i Norrala socken, med betoningen på folktro, vidskeplighet och skrock bland den äldre generationen jordbrukare på Hälsingegårdar. Även folktron bland nuvarande generationer hälsingebönder finns representerad, eftersom de yngre utgör dagens representanter på Hälsingegårdarna. Studien baseras på semistrukturella intervjuer utförda i maj 2007 och analysen av studien härleds till Ebbe Schöns teorier gällande folktron, där nödvändigheten av magi och vidskepelse bland bönder är framträdande. Sammanfattningen visar att folktro och vidskeplighet är begränsad, både bland de yngre och äldre generationerna i Norrala, även om de yngre till synes har en större förståelse för vidskeplighet och även anammar valda delar. Resultatet av studien visar att det finns möjliga samband mellan folktro, skrock och vidskeplighet, kristen tro och fornskandinavisk religion.

Abstract [en]

This essay is the result of a study carried out in Norrala County, which focuses on folklore and superstitious beliefs among older farmhouse holders in Hälsingland. The representation of folklore and superstition among younger generations is also dealt with, as they represent the Farmhouses of Hälsingland today. The study is based upon semi-structured interviews, carried out in May 2007 and the analysis is linked to the theories of Ebbe Schön, dealing with aspects of folklore as well as the necessity of magic and superstition among farmers from a historical perspective. The outcome shows that folklore and superstition is limited among the older generations in the Norrala surroundings as well as among the younger generation although the latter seem to have greater understandings towards superstitious beliefs and at times adhere to it. Furthermore, there are possible links to be found between folklore and superstitious beliefs, Christian worship and Old Norse Religions.
