Abstract:
The study is a critical assessment of the Islendingasögur and ĺslendingaÞættir through the lens of costume and textile history, aiming to shed light on the possible connections or discrepancies between dress and identity within the narrative fabric. The process of characterisation is analysed in detail, with emphasis on the correlation between actions and behaviour on the one hand and physical appearance and clothing on the other. Particular attention is given to Norse aesthetic standards, the perception of beauty and of its absence, and their rendering in the corpus in question.
