It should be pointed out that the Norwegian article differs in some aspects from how I remember Bausani's account. I have forever misplaced the copy of the German translation I had access to, but if someone fluent in Italian is interested I do have a photocopy of the Italian version somewhere. I could try to dig it up, scan it and send it. -- /BP 8^)> -- Benct Philip Jonsson -- melroch at melroch dot se "Maybe" is a strange word.
