Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the nature of the evidence for the possible presence of Irish and Armenians in the centuries before and after the millennium. The presence in Iceland of Irish ecclesiastical objects is a related, but separate, question; indeed, in Ari's presentation, it is the key to the identification of the papar, a term which he attributes to Norwegians. Ecclesiastical objects of Irish provenance could also have reached Iceland via the Hebrides or Orkney Islands.

Keywords: Armenians; ecclesiastical objects; Hebrides; Irish; Medieval Iceland; Orkney Islands
