Abstract

A millennium ago, Iceland embraced a movement that would shape her people’s future far beyond the volcanic eruptions that had configured her land in the past. In A.D. 1000, the Icelandic nation adopted Christianity as its official religion, and the ice of paganism began to melt. [1] The year 2000 marked the millennial anniversary of this transforming event, which native Icelanders recognized with much celebration.
