  • Snorri XVIX. – Snorri – (The cover of the book) More than 300 years before Columbus became the temporary laughingstock of Europa for asserting the Earth was round, Snorri Sturluson, in remote Iceland, started his first Saga in the chronicle of the Norwegian kings with the word: "Heimskringla” – translated by the Encyclopedia Britanica as, "the orb of the world”.
  • Snorri XVII. – Norway – When Snorri had come to Norway for the second time during the summer of 1237, King Håkon and Duke Skule still got on well together. They soon became enemies and Snorri sided with Duke Skule. King Håkon forbaded Snorri to return to Iceland. Snorri was given a ship owned by the Duke himself and paid no attention to the Kings order to postpone the journey.
  • Snorri XV. – Discord – The battles were more brutal than ever, kinsman against kinsman fighting for power, opposing Norwegian sovereignty. The ancient ideals of honour, from the time of the Sagas, had crumbled away. Snorri had misjudges the situation because he thought there would be peace. He left Reykholt and moved to Bessastadir, where the president of Iceland now lives.
  • Snorri XIII. – Paganism – "Representation of the god Thor.” In pagan times the godi was a pagan "priest” who was responsible for the blot (sacrifice). According to the Laws of the Free State, the powers of the godi were equal. When Christianity was introduced the "godis” became secular chieftains. Iceland needed with this structure no military defence, being more a union of little independent states.
  • Snorri XII. – Homeward Bound – King Håkon and Jarl Skule appointed Snorri their Lendmann. Snorri adviced the King strongly against sending an army out to Iceland. On the contrary, he adviced that they should make friends with the men on Iceland.
  • Snorri XI. – Journeying – Snorri had been wanting to sail to Norway for a long time. He had written a poem about Jarl Håkon the Mad. For two years he remained in the land from which his forfathers had departed many centuries earlier, a mong people for whom he was to do more than any foreigner of all times.
  • Snorri X. – Landscape – In a single moment new variations of brightness can create blatant contrasts in nature and paint bold colours.
  • Snorri IX. - Strife – For 27 years Bishop Gudmunder at Holar had kept the conflict going between himself on one side, and the chieftains and the Bishop of Sallholt on the other. He was the direct cause of the interference by Norwegian authorities and the end of the Free State of Island. Then Snorri Sturluson stepped forward and cut the Gordian knot. In the summer of 1215, Snorri Sturlason was elected as ...
  • Snorri VI. – From Oddi – Snorri had come to a center of learning. Many learned works about Snorri have emphasized how much it meant to the coming intellectual gigant to have been reared at precisely this seat of learning; and that both Iceland and Norway owe a debt of gratitude to his foster father, Jon.
  • Snorri V. – The Land of Youth – Here there were rolling plains and no mountains exept on the horizon. Snorri was not entitled to express an opinion about himself, as he onely 3 years old, a pawn in a political game, set out on a jorney with his father to meet his foster home. No one is in a position to know what went on in the little boy’s mind during that long journey ...
  • Snorri II. – Childhood Snorri’s mother, Gudney, was at the age of 20 years married to his father Sturla a rising star on the chieftain horizon to the west. Sturla was a Godi of Hvammur, a widower with nine children, seven of them outside of marriage.
