The Icelandic Tradition of Sunstone
“Rauðúlfs þáttr" is the medieval Icelandic tale of Saint Olav, relating how Sunstone (Icelandic: sólarsteinn) was used. A round and rotating house visited by Olav has been interpreted as a model of the cosmos and the human soul as well as a prefiguration of the Church. The concept belongs to the genre of ‘abodes of the Sun,’ which was widespread in medieval literature. St. Olav used the Sunstone to confirm the time reckoning skill of his host right after leaving this house. He held the Sunstone up against the snowy and completely overcast sky and noted where light was emitted from it (the Icelandic words used do not make it clear whether the light was reflected by the stone, emitted by it or transmitted through it). A theory exists that the Sunstone had polarizing attributes and was used as a navigation instrument by seafarers in the Viking Age.
