About this item

To augment the many histories and tales of the Christianization of Iceland and the early centuries of the church, Sigurdson focuses on the Icelandic Church after 1262-64, when Icelandic leaders and people submitted to the king of Norway. With closer connections to broader ecclesiastical hierarchies in Norway and elsewhere, she says, the church witnessed major developments in bureaucracy and organization as well as the growth of a powerful and wealthy ecclesiastic elite. She draws from the rich literature of the period, which during the 14th century turned to religious subjects to a degree not seen before, with bishops' sagas, translated saints' lives, Christian skaldic poetry, and more.
