Item description for Poetry on Christian Subjects (Norse-Icelandic Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages) (Norse-Icelandic Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle ... Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages) by Margaret Clunies Ross, Mike Spick, Nina Antonetti, Carol T. Christ, Pancha Diaz & Nora Osganian...

This is the first volume of an envisaged nine that are the fruits of an international project to edit the complete corpus of medieval skaldic poetry. The project is supported by the Union Acadmique Internationale (supported project no. 60). Funding has been provided by, amongst others, the UK Arts & Humanities Research Board; the Australian Research Council; and the Joint Committee of the Nordic Research Councils for Humanities. The Norse-Icelandic Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages project aims to produce a new edition of the known corpus of Norse-Icelandic skaldic poetry, including runic inscriptions in metrical form. In practice this means editing all poetry supposed to be earliest until c. 1400 and which does not belong to the Codex Regius of the Elder Edda and manuscripts containing related texts, such as AM 748 I 4 The edition will appear in book and electronic form. The editors do not intend to follow the format of Finnur Jnsson's Den Norsk-Islandske Skjaldedigtning A and B (1912-15), currently regarded as the standard edition of the skaldic corpus, with separate volumes of diplomatic and critical editions. This new edition will consist of a critical edition with an English translation. It will, however, in all cases reexamine the manuscript evidence for the poetic texts and their locations. To do this a data bank of photographs of the manuscripts has been established for the editors to work from. Many relevant photographs already exist in the two Arnamagnan Institutes, in Reykjavk and Copenhagen. Some photographs have been made specially for the project. The published edition is divided into three parts. The first includes the editions of complete, identifiable poems or fragments; the second, editions of lausavsur (single verses) and Finnur Jnsson's ubestemmelige vers (poetry of indeterminate provenance), while the third part consists of a bibliography. The overall project is under the direction of a group of five editors: Professor Margaret Clunies Ross (University of Sydney), Professor Kari Gade (Indiana University), Dr. Gurn Nordal (Stofnun rna Magnssonar), Professor Edith Marold (University of Kiel) and Dr. Diana Whaley (University of Newcastle on Tyne). It has the patronage and assistance of five consultants, who give advice on editorial matters and offer support in accessing the manuscripts that are necessary to the project, many of which are in one or other of the two Arnamagnan Institutes of Icelandic Studies.
