notes

[4] þars * faðir ‘where his father’: Lit. ‘there where [his] father’: The enclitic rel. particle [e]s has been added for syntactic reasons (þar for þars is a C14th construction; see NS §265 Anm. 2a), and the possessive hans ‘his’ (so Flat) has been omitted (extrametrical).

[7] Krists * kirkju: Krists at kirkju Flat

notes

[7] * Kristskirkju (f. dat. or gen. sg.) ‘in Kristkirken’: Krists at kirkju (lit. ‘Christ’s at Church’; so Flat) renders the l. as fornyrðislag rather than kviðuháttr, and most earlier eds delete the prep., assuming a loc. dat. or gen. (see NS §§117, 141). For the translation ‘in Kristkirken’ see NN §2808. See also Note to st. 31 [All].

The st. shows close verbal correspondences with the prose in Ágr (ÍF 29, 37): En lík hans var fœrt norðr í Þrándheim ok nið<r> sett í Kristskirkju, þar sem faðir hans hvílir. Ok var þetta hvárutveggja landinu mikill harmdauði ‘But his body was brought north to Trondheim and buried in Kristkirken where his father rests. And his death was much lamented [lit. this was a great grief-death] in both countries’. Magnús was not buried in Kristkirken, however, because that church was erected later by his cousin Óláfr Haraldsson (see Note to st. 31 [All]). Rather, his body was interred in Klemenskirken (Clemenskirkja, the Church of S. Clement), which also housed the shrine of S. Óláfr before it was moved to Kristkirken, and Magnús’s remains must have been moved later to Kristkirken along with those of his father. See HSigHkr (ÍF 28, 107). The wrong place of burial is also given in Mork (1928-32, 147) and Fsk (ÍF 29, 249). See also Okík Magn 2-3, ÞjóðA Lv 1, Anon (MH) 1.
