Complicated it is!
It's taken me years to get this untangled ... we knew pieces of it, but finally we have a more complete picture.
What we're now trying to track down is a more complete image of who Laust Glavind was ... And where he came from!
He's mentioned in books in Danish about "folk healers" and appararently he was quite the "interesting" character. He's still revered by some as an occult figure (quite the departure from our VERY fundamentalist origins we supposed). But by others, he's considered just another "kwaaksalveri" (THINK I've got that right .. a quack) ...
