Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the Passio Olaviand liturgical Olav worship in Scandinavia and Norway. It is a truth that most of manuscript sources of medieval Norway did not survive the Reformation. So even no Passio Olavi manuscript is delivered with Norwegian origin. However, two important textual witnesses are connected with Scandinavia, more precisely to Sweden. The chapter discusses the liturgical material to trace the earliest evidence of the Passio Olavi in Norway. It discusses the relationship between the indicated versions of the Passio portion and the resulting liturgical Olav sources to gain better understanding of the text and history of the Passio Olavi tradition. The chapter geographically focuses on the liturgical Olav tradition within Scandinavia as well as connections of the surviving sources to other centers of Olav worship outside of the Scandinavia. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: liturgical material; liturgical Olav tradition; liturgical Olav worship; Passio Olavi; reformation; textual witnesses
