    One view is of the Vikings ...

    Hello.

    Would you take a look at the following?

    "Two views of the Vikings have emerged from these accounts. One view is of the Vikings as brutal warriors who led vicious attacks. The other view is of the Vikings as noble seafarers who embarked on journeys of exploration."

    Do both "of the Vikings" mean "one or that [= the view] of the Vikings"?

    If not, would you let me know the meaning of the phrases?


    Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    They are used in the same way as in the opening sentence "Two views of the Vikings", meaning "There are two different generally accepted opinions of what the Vikings were like..."

    One view is [that] of the Vikings as...

    They could be read as "One view of the Vikings is...." and "The other view of the Vikings is..."
