  • 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 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 VIII. – First Home – Reykholt was not an old farm, but it was ideally situated in Reykjadralur, with low mountains and great meadows – and wooded landscapes – with peat marches and mountain summer dairy farms, that could feed large herds of livestock. A Church stood there. In practice it was the farmer who owned the church, with the income it provided.

  • 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 IV. - Thingvellir II – It was then that Jon Loftsson revealed his wisdom and knowledge of human nature. After a crushing defeat for Sturla, Jon went over to him an offered to foster his youngest son, Snorri, who at the time was a little more than two years old. He asked Sturla to bring his son to Oddi on the 8th of July, the first anniversary of the consecration of the ...
  • Snorri III. – Thingvellir I – At the Allting in the summer of 1179 it was decided to bring a dispute about an inheritance before an assembly of conciliation. Then something happened: Thorbjørg was the name of Palls’ wife. She was more hottempered than other people. Suddenly she rushed forward with a knife in her hand and stabbed at Sturla, aiming at his eyes and cried: "Why shouldn’t I turn you into the ...
  • 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.
  • ”Island”. The Saga of the land is about 20 million years old. At that time the land shot up out of the sea – created by fire. A land in which the family mattered (and still matters) more to self-esteem-or lack of it- than elsewhere in Europe.
  • "Written in Nynorsk, very hard going for someone who only reads Bokmaal as second language. To my surprise, a friend who reads Swedish undestands the language of the book better than I do. Swedish is apparently closer to old Norwegian than is Bokmaal. What\'s needed for success: a very good Nynorsk-English or Nynorsk-Bokmaal dictionary. However, the reproductions of paintings by Jarle Rosseland would make the book worthwhile even if you can\'t read it! The feeling ...
