Resumen

117

Vǫlsunga Saga es una de las fuentes de mayor riqueza literaria producidas en el contexto nórdico medieval. El objetivo del artículo es demostrar las formas en las que se configura la identidad dentro de la familia de los Volsungos durante la representación de un rito de paso. Durante este proceso, varios personajes adoptan comportamientos lupinos. Se argumentará que la metamorfosis es determinada por la presión estructural ejercida sobre el cuerpo y afecta no solo al individuo transformado, sino también al grupo enemigo que se convertirá en su presa. Previamente, mostramos las condiciones y el desarrollo del rito de paso, en el que se otorga a los ancestros el poder de influir sobre su descendencia. Asimismo, demostraremos que las definiciones y obligaciones que se desprenden de la estructura de parentesco tienen la capacidad de caracterizar al grupo enemigo como un «otro» y legitimar los actos de violencia cometidos en su contra.
