  • HEIMSKRINGLA consists of some 6500 titles in the Old Norse language or translated into the modern Scandinavian languages.
  • HEIMSKRINGLA builds on the assumption that these texts – being part of our cultural heritage – should be made available for everybody.

Gustav Storm 2.jpg
Islandske Annaler
By Gustav Storm
Annals constitute a separate genre of their own in medieval literature. They record chronological lists of events of each year in and around Iceland. Because of their brief and almost key word-like style, the value of the annals is not a literary one but a historical. They are important sources to medieval history.

In the year 1888 historian Gustav Storm gathered and published all the Icelandic Annals. This great work has now been fully digitalized and is available on Heimskringla.

Språkliga intyg cover.png
Språkliga intyg om hednisk gudatro i Sverige
Magnus Fredrik Lundgren

Språkliga intyg om hednisk gudatro i Sverige. Usually scholars go to the Old Norse sources for information about Norse mythology and pre-Christian religion in Scandinavia. But in this book the Swedish linguist Magnus Fredrik Lundgren takes another starting point, investigating if the language itself – independently of the Eddaic poems and Snorris mythology – contains reliable tracks of "pagan beliefs". Old forms of personal names and toponymic names play an important part in this investigation. – This is a publication from HEIMSKRINGLA Reprint and is available here.

Q: The text I am looking for is not to be found in the "Norrøne Tekster og Kvad" - project. Will you be so kind as to publish it for me?
A: The aim is to make "Norrøne Tekster og Kvad" as comprehensive as possible. In practice the greatest limitation is the acquisition of text material. It goes without saying that such a wide-ranging project cannot be completed in all fields at the same time. Which areas are finished first and how broadly or well the coverage is, will depend on who is contributing to the project at a given time.

Sp.: Is an App available for the material on Heimskringla?
