The Icelandic Sagas

The Icelandic people have a vast literary legacy, especially considering their small numbers. The Icelandic Sagas are a genre of stories that are mostly local histories from medieval times. The Icelandic Sagas are probably the best example of Icelandic literature.

During the times the sagas were written, Iceland was mostly converted to Christianity, but their heathen past was still a fresh memory that shines through in the sagas.

On this page you can find an overview of the Icelandic sagas available on Hravan. At the moment not all of the Icelandic Sagas are available on Hravan, but we expect to remedy that in the near future.
