- This article highlights representations of household spirit (domovoj (домовой) and nissen) in folk culture of the Arhangelsk region, Russia, and Northern Norway. The work proposes typological and regional approaches to the study of collected material. Typological vector is used to describe diachronic evidence and to evaluate genre characteristics, as well as to highlight historic and typologic features of folklore images. Typological direction studies those trends that lead to formation of plot and character groups. Regional approach allows a detailed study of the traditions of the area, regional, local and microlocal traits of northern folklore.
