Fully one-third of Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla is taken up by the saga of Olaf the Holy. It has been ably translated by Lee M. Hollander in Heimskringla: History of the Kings of Norway by Snorri Sturluson, with introduction and notes (Austin, 1964). Marlene Ciklamini has one chapter on Olaf in her Snorri Sturluson (Boston, 1978), and Jan de Vries's Altnordische Literaturgeschichte, 2 vols., 2d ed. (Berlin, 1964–1967) contains useful information on the literary traditions on Olaf. For historical details of Olaf's life and reign, see Erik Gunnes's Riks-samling og Kristning 800–1177 (Oslo, 1976), volume 2 of the series "Norges Historie," edited by Knut Mykland.
