Information about ‘Papar’ in English

Celtic Cross

Q: Do you know of any articles or books (in English) about the Irish hermits who were living in Iceland when the Vikings began the Settlement? I have looked on Amazon and Google, but have not found much there.

I am working on a writing project having to do with the Papar and the Settlers, so anything you might know of would be helpful.

A: When searching for papar in English on leitir.is, the search web for libraries in Iceland, these were the results.

The list included the article ‘Unveiling the Mystery of the Papar’​ by Brian Patrick Fitzgibbon, published in issue 43 (1) of Iceland Review in 2005.
