Chapter Summary

This appendix section of this book titled Constructing a Cult presents the offerings listed in miracle stories. This list provides, a very general image of what was offered by suppliants to thank or ask Guðmundr for intercession. The next appendix also presents Translatio of Guðmundr's bones performed by Bishop Auðunn Þorbergsson and the cult of the vernacular saints as recorded in the Icelandic annals. It introduces Jón Ögmundarson and Þorlákr Þorhallsson as saints. In two annals the deaths of certain individuals have been presented in a hagiographical manner, although no other information concerning their saintly status is to be found in any extant sources. The seventh appendix includes the geographical distribution of images and sagas commissioned to honour the three Icelandic holy bishops and the days honouring these bishops. The last appendix contains the Episcopal sees and religious houses in Iceland.

Keywords:Guðmundr; holy bishops; Icelandic annals
