#skálholt

Skálholt, the former Episcopal see, and farm, in the Southern Region in Iceland is one of the most important historical places in the country.  For ages, the Iceland was a rural agricultural society with almost no form of a significant urban area.  The Church was a powerful institution both socially and economically in addition to its main spiritual and religious role. Accordingly, Skálholt became a center and played the role of a capital of Iceland for centuries.
