Saint Thorlak came from a poor farming family, ordained to the priesthood at 18 and studied theology in France and England. As Bishop of Skalholt, now The Diocese of Reykjavik, he worked to end church laxity and abuses, especially in the clergy. He established a monastery to the strict rule of St. Augustine. Today, Icelanders celebrate St.Thorlak’s day, the final day of preparation before Christmas, by eating cured fish.
