Manuscritos Medievais


Se tiver a sorte de estar em Reiqujavique vá à Culture House. Verá uma exposição de manuscritos medievais que Jorge-Luis Borges adoraria ter visto. Num tempo digital em que massivamente fomos deixando de escrever à mão, tem-se o redobrado prazer de deixar o olhar correr por textos de antes da revølução de Guttenberg.




Many of Iceland’s national treasures are on display in the Culture House’s featured exhibition Medieval Manuscripts – Eddas and Sagas. It includes the principal medieval manuscripts, such as Codex Regius of the Poetic Edda and the compendium Flateyjarbók, as well as law codices and Christian works, not to forget the Sagas of Icelanders. Important paper manuscripts from later centuries are also displayed.


The ancient vellum manuscripts preserve the Northern classical heritage: unique sagas, poems and narratives which are often our sole written sources of information on the society, religion and world view of the people of Northern Europe from pagan times through the tumult of Viking Expansion, the settlement of the Atlantic Islands and the period of Christianisation.


The exhibition focuses on the period preceding the writing of the manuscripts, their origins and role, manuscript collecting, editions, and on their reception in Iceland and abroad. It also portrays the process of book making itself: preparing the vellum and ink, writing, illuminating etc. are explained in a special exhibit area.

Opened 5 October 2002
