Line 147

'Deniscan leode' - Ælfric is more restrained in his treatment of the Vikings than Abbo, for whom they are 'hardened with the stiff frost of their own wickedness' (indurati frigore suae malitiae). They are from the north, the home of Lucifer, and are consequently more likely than any other race to follow Antichrist (quae antichristum . . . secuturae sunt ante omnes gentes). Some practice cannibalism.
