    Iceland’s inculturative conversion to Christanity created a short period of time in which there was relative peace between Christians and Nordic pre-Christain peoples. During which Early Christian Icelanders had to build their own ecclesiastical system whilst living amongst a community still familiar with pre-Christian practices. There is a significant lack of scholarship concerning the “interactions” between the two religions, especially regarding to how Icelandic Christianity was affected during its development. This project aims to assess the degree to which the Nordic pre-Christian ‘religion’ affected the development of early Christianity in Iceland, especially in regards to their material culture. A religion’s material culture is best represented in their ritual wear and tools. Research is organized into three sections, Nordic pre-Christian ritual wear (700-1100CE), European Christian Vestments (700-1100CE), and Early Icelandic Christian ritual wear (1100-1500CE). This projects aims to take an interdisciplinary approach, researching from both literary and archeological sources. Special attention is paid to artistic analysis of archaeological evidence and narrative context in literary evidence. This project propses that early Christian Icelanders stylistically had developed more conservatively in response to Nordic pre-Christian practices
