A comprehensive and profusely illustrated
accompaniment to the exhibition The Manuscripts
of Iceland, which was organized by the Árni
Magnússon Institute and opened in the Culture
House in Reykjavík on October 5, 2002. In this
collection of articles scholars present the
story of Icelandic manuscripts, their medieval
origins, the literature they contain and its
influence up to the present day. The meeting of
written Christian and classical culture with the
rich oral traditions in Iceland brought forth a
remarkable literary flowering, an eloquent
source of information about pagan Scandinavian
culture and thought. In time this literature
came to inspire the sense of national character
in the Nordic countries and exerted notable
influence in the German- and English- speaking
worlds. This book and the exhibition it
accompanies are a tribute to the central role
that medieval Icelandic literature played in
forging national identities in Northern Europe.
