AM 180 b fol.

Saga Manuscript ; Iceland, 1490-1510

Athugasemd
AM 180 a fol. and AM 180 b fol. originally belonged to the same manuscript and was divided into two. As Karlamagnús saga ends on the last page of a gathering, the manuscript was divided at that place. The 60 leaves containing Karlamagnús saga was catalogued as AM 180 a fol. while the last 52 leaves containing other works was catalogued as AM 180 b fol.

Knýtlinga saga
Vensl

To independent copies of this saga from the seventeenth century, when the saga was much more complete than now, survive. These transcripts are: AM 1005 4to and GKS 1006 fol..

Athugasemd

The order of the two parts of Knýtlinga saga in the manuscript is confusing. There is no doubt about the chronological order as the second fragment covers the period 1047-80 but the first part starts where Canute the Holy is sent to the throne in 1080. The peculiar order of events, however, is not due to the leaves being mixed up; the second part ends on fol. 34r:6 where Vitus saga begins and the first part ends on fol. 19v:9 where Bærings saga fagra ends. Presumably be that the copyist did not have a complete text of Knýtlinga saga when he started his work and when he got hold of a more complete source text he added the remaining as a supplement.

Foliated by Kristian Kålund in the upper right-hand corners of the rectos.

Kveraskipan

The manuscript consists of seven quires. The first four quires are complete and each consists of eight conjoint leaves. There are catchwords at the end of each quire with the exception of fols 38 and 46.

  • I: fols 1-8.
  • II: fols 9-16.
  • III: fols 17-24.
  • IV: fols 25-32.
  • V: fols 33-38, the first and the eight leaves are missing.
  • VI: fols 39-46.
  • VII: fols 47-52, between fols 49 and 50 the two inner leaves are missing.

Umbrot

Written in one column and the number of lines varies from 37 to 45 lines per page. Red, green and blue chapter initials occur. In many cases, however, the colour is significantly faded or has vanished.

Ástand

The manuscript consists of two fragments; the first consists of fols 1-32 and the second fols 33-52. It is badly damaged: leaves have gone missing and the writing is faded or almost illegible on many of the extant leaves.

At several places corners or margins are cut off, both with and without loss of text. The middle part of the conjoint leaves 2 and 7 was cut away, leaving only the seven and nine top lines and between thirteen and fifteen of the bottom lines.

Towards the end of the manuscript at least two leaves, containing the end of Laurentius saga, are missing.

Skrifarar og skrift

It is difficult to determine whether the manuscript is written by one or more hands. The writing is larger at some parts of the manuscript than at other parts but the difference of letter sizing, does not necessarily mean a change of hands. There are not many significant differences in the orthography so even if the manuscript was written by two different scribes they were, in all probability, contemporary and belonged to the samme scribal school.

The script is Icelandic Gothic bookhand. The text is carelessly written; it exhibits various scribal errors, more apparent than most other Icelandic manuscripts from the same period, and on almost each page significant words have been left out.

Spássíugreinar og aðrar viðbætur

  • Lacunae are indicated by a nineteenth century hand in the bottom margins of fols 38v, 49v og 52v.
  • A seventeenth century hand wrote the titles of the þættir (where the beginnings are still extant) and various hands wrote names of the people occurring in the sagas in the top part of some of the leaves.
  • Árni Magnússon added the words Aptan af Conrads saugu. on the top of fol 1r and in the upper part of the outer margin another hand added H. Dunsta-|ni Saga | hefst her.
  • On fol. 5v, top margin: S. Dunstanus Episcopus.
  • Fol. 10r, top margin: Bærings saga er hin Skemtilegazta Saga.
  • In the top margins of the rectos of fols 11-19: Bærings Saga.
  • Fol. 19v, top margin: Knÿtlinga saga byriazt hier . This is written on top of an older text of which only the words Knutz [?] saga are visible.
  • The margin of fol. 34r: Vitus saga.
  • The margin of fol. 36r: Laurentius saga.
  • Fol. 46v, top margin: Laurentius saga.
  • Fol. 30r, top margin: bothill|dar leifj, referring to Bóthildr, the mother of Catune Lavard, against where she is mentioned for the first time in the saga.
  • Fol. 33r, top margin: Incipit ex posteriore parte capitis XXII.
  • On fols 44r and 48r, respectively, the scribe added the words: erchibiskupín and fiogr which were left out of the text.
  • Many of the leaves also contain verses, single words, names etc.
  • Fol. 5v, bottom margin, the name Jon is written upside down.
  • An illegible patronymic is found on the bottom margin of fol. 34v: agnus .
  • Fol. 35r, bottom margin: þa linner fyre.
  • Fol. 38v, bottom margin: ser man et alfabet fra a til l.
  • Fol. 48r, bottom margin: aue maria.

Uppruni og ferill

Uppruni

The manuscript is written in Iceland. The dating of it has been debated:

Dictionary of Old Norse Prose consider Björnsson's and Halvorsen's dating as authoritative.

Ferill

On fol. 11v, a monogram consisting of the letters G and Þ is written in the upper margin four times. According to Kålund ( KKKat ) this is the monogram of the bishop of Hólar Guðbrandur Þorláksson. Ólafur Halldórsson ( Rit37 s. 83, footnote 17 ) however, finds that the initials belong to Gísli Þórðarson.

Aðföng

Árni Magnússon acquired the book AM 180 a fol./AM 180 b fol. of owners in Northern Iceland. According to fols 139v-140r in his catalogue of Icelandic parchment manuscripts, AM 435 a fol., the codex was divided while it resided in Northern Iceland. Árni mentions that he acquired one part from Skúli Ólafsson and another part from Magnús Jónsson of Leirá. The following account comprises both AM 180a fol and 180b fol.: Karla Magnuss Saga, vantar framanvid og | vida i Miduna. | Aptanaf Konradz Sỏgu Keisarasonar. | Dunstani Saga (authore fratre Arnone Laurentii f.) vantar i. | Katrinar Saga, vantar i. Bærings Saga fagra. | Ur Knytlinga Sỏgu, um Knut helga, Olaf, | Eirik goda, og Nikulas. Vantar vid endan. | um Svein Ulfsson og Haralld Hein (ur | Knytlinga Sỏgu) vantar upphafed. | Vitus Saga Pislarvottz. vantar i. | Laurentius Saga Hola biskups. vantar i. | folio majore. | Þesse bok var komin i marga parta | nordur i lande, og hefi eg hana feinged | af ymsum.
