CORMACK, M.

The Saints in Iceland.  Their Veneration from the Conversion to 1400. Preface by Peter FOOTE (= Subsidia hagiographica, 78).

 

Description

Unique repertory of the saints venerated in mediaeval Iceland.  Each entry specifies the churches where the saint was venerated as well as his feast-day; where relevant, it mentions literary works (sagas) devoted to him (her), and local iconographic depictions of him (her).  The work also contains a list of all the churches and chapels whose existence is attested prior to 1400: the names of the saints associated with each place, which can easily be found on a large-scale unfolding map, the date of consecration of the edifice and the sources in which it is mentioned are listed.  A fundamental reference work for Icelandic Church history.
