In this fourth volume about Greenland’s history, we find ourselves in 14th century catholic society of Southern Greenland. It's a tale of everyday life, faith and loyalty.
In “The Scar", we follow the two children and siblings, Bjørg and Thorleif, enter ab oath of loyality in which they mix their blood. When they grow up, both get married and Bjørg has children. Bjørg's husband sails northwards to hunt walrus and trade with the inuit, he is invited to go to bed with a local woman. When he returns home to Sissarluttoq, his conscience is plauing him, and when Bjørg gives birth to a dead child, he confesses his infidelity.
Gardar, the episcopal see in Southern Greenland, belongs to the Norwegian church, and the Greenlanders pay tithes to the Norwegian Archbishop and taxes to the Norwegian king and the city where they trade their goods. Bjørg travels to Bergen with Thorleif and his wife Gudveig. The journey has catastrophic consequenses for the little group of Greenlanders and, after their return, the oath of loyalty between Bjørg and her brother is activated.
“The Scar” is a tale of cultural meetings, mission, revenge killing, barter and friendship based on archaeological discoveries and historical sources from this period.
The book is the fourth volume in the series “Oqaluttuat/Tales” and has been created through close collaboration between the Greenland educational media publishers Ilinniusiorfik and The National Museum of Denmark.
