  •  Back when the Vikings were around (0+ / 0-)

    Back when the Vikings were around, Christians could own Christian slaves. They were not supposed to sell Christians to non-Christians.

    When you see these rules, femember that they were rules. We don't always obey rules today, and they didn't always obey rules back then.

    I don't know how well they obeyed the rules about selling Christians, but there were occasional attempts to free Christian slaves of Jews in various Christian lands.
