  • Philip Thomas Lavender
This article looks at the intellectual history behind and scholarly preparation towards the first edition of Illuga saga Gríðarfóstra in Sweden in 1695. One of the main questions which the article tries to answer is why an edition of a saga about Danish kings and heroes would end up being produced in the middle of the Sweden and Denmark's fiercely competitive nation-building furore.
