Offer Description

The project consists in the study of a group of original riddarasögur ('knights' sagas'), composed in Iceland during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, characterized by the presence of an important religious component that distinguishes them from other texts of the genre: the Bærings saga fagra ('Saga of Bæring the Fair'), the Dámusta saga ('Saga of Dámusti') and the Mírmanns saga ('Mírmann's Saga'). The project aims to identify common characteristics of these texts and to define descriptive parameters that can define them as a particular category within the genre to which they are attributed: a category in which the most frequent modes and motifs in riddarasögur, both original and translated, interact significantly with those of religious literature, of continental or original origin (Heilagra manna sögur, Biskupa sögur).
