Jon Bjarnason at Mountain, North Daklota, at the 4th annual convention of the Evangelical Icelandi Lutheran Synod of North America, June 26, 1888. In this lecture Bjarnalson speaks of the cultural and Spiritual erosion of Icelandic society and ists relevance to Icelandic immigrants and church in North America. Gen. note Fyrirlestr, sem séra Jón Bjarnason flutti í Mountain í Dakota innan Bandaríkja, meðan stóð á 4. ársþingi hins ev. lút. kirkjufélags Íslendinga í Vestrheimi, hinn 26. dag Júnímánaðar 1888. AUTHOR BIO: The author, Bjarnason was the first clergyman among the Icelandic immigrant communities of Manitoba and "a towering . . . ecclesiastical leader, often considered greatest of them all", according to Stefan Einarson (see Einarson's A History of Icelandic Literature, N. Y., Johns Hopkins Press, 1957, p 340; see Einarsson's History of Icelandic Prose Writers, 1800-1940, Ithica, N. Y., Cornell, 1948.). Bjarnason's sermon's have historic significance in that he was the more liberal clergyman whose disputes with the conservative Reverend Pall Thorlaksson split the Canadian Icelandic community. Also, an Icelandic high school in Winnipeg, the Jón Bjarnasson Academy, was named after him. Referenced in Hjartar, p. 61. At time of cataloguing, not listed in AMICUS; not in Peel. Very early item in Icelandic Canadian canon, and rare. Bookseller Inventory # 34085
