"Vésteinsson's book skillfully draws on a wide range of historical and archaeological sources in order to challenge and revise traditional assumptions about the development of ecclesiastical institutions in medieval Iceland...a valuable resource for any historian interested both in the development of ecclesiastical institutions and in the relationships between ecclesiastical and socio-political institutions in medieval Europe." -- Lutheran Quarterly

The author has provided a real service.
This is a really fascinating study. My only complaint is the price. It is very expensive.
I am half Icelander so the book appealed to me.
