Books on Icelandic Churches Released

The 11th and 12th volumes of the ambitious series of book Kirkjur Íslands (“Churches of Iceland”) were released earlier this month. The series were initiated by the National Museum of Iceland and the National Architectural Heritage Board in 1996.

The purpose of the series is to provide a historical and cultural overview of all of Iceland’s 207 preserved churches on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of Christianity in Iceland in 2000.

The churches are featured from the viewpoint of architecture, style and national relic preservation. The books are adorned with a wealth of photographs. Twenty-six volumes are planned in total.

The publication is supported by the Bishop’s Office and the Icelandic Literature Association is the co-publisher and distributor.
