Pagans in the Early Modern Baltic awarded book prize

Lithuanian pagans depicted worshipping snakes, fire and trees in Olaus Magnus, Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus (1555)

My forthcoming book with Arc Humanities Press, Pagans in the Early Modern Baltic: Sixteenth-Century Ethnographic Accounts of Baltic Paganism, has just been awarded a Book Publication Subvention Award by the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies.

The book is the first translation into English of key texts in the study of paganism in the Baltic (primarily Lithuania), where pagan practices survived for longer than almost anywhere else in Europe. The AABS Book Subvention Award is awarded twice a year to a book that makes a substantial contribution to advancing knowledge of the Baltic region. The award should allow the book to be published at a price more affordable to the general reader and will therefore make Pagans in the Early Modern Baltic more accessible to a wider audience.
