Polish edition of Heimskringla by Snorri Sturluson


Members of the Centre have embarked on a collaboration on the Polish translation of one of the most important monuments of Icelandic literature. Heimskringla is a collection of 16 sagas devoted to Norwegian rulers from the so-called legendary times to the mid-twelfth century. It was written around 1230 by Snorri Sturluson, an Icelandic politician, poet and historiographer. The translation of the opus is financed by the grant of the National Programme for the Development of Humanities. The head of the project is Anna Waśko, Associate Professor of the Jagiellonian University. The Polish edition of Heimskringla is planned to be published in 2021.
