H. Bekker-Nielsen and B. 3106]; B. Fidjestøl, ‘European and native tradition in Ólafs saga helga’, (O10):184-200 Compendia Following on from the synoptics, the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries saw an escalation in the compilation of kings’ sagas, which were grouped together into large compendia, mostly in Iceland. As in the earlier period, they seem largely to be heavily dependent upon one another. [B320] Morkinskinna occupies a striking position in the kings’ saga tradition. Covering the period from the death of saint Olaf in 1030 up until the mid-twelfth century, it can be seen as the oldest of the great compendia, and therefore the one whose sources are least clear; it is unfortunately only preserved in later, interpolated versions, and has awkward lacunae.

G. N. 25] Transmission and function [B500] The authenticity of skaldic verse depends in large part upon our understanding of its transmission from the Viking age to mediaeval manuscripts. There is currently a broad consensus that court poetry, in the form of long stanzaic compositions such as drápur, has a greater claim to be considered ‘original’ than the loose verses, although like any sweeping statement this has to be assessed in any individual case. For an attempt to define this corpus of court poetry, see (B490).
