He is described in Orkney Inga Saga shaft â € œA man of extraordinary distinction, tall, with a fine, intelligent look about him. He was a man of strict virtue, successful in war, wise, eloquent, generous and magnanimous, open-handed with money and with sound advice, and altogether the most popular or men.â €
Saint Magnus was a man of peace, contemplation and scholarly learning; spiritual intensity is more a feature of Magnusâ € ™ Saga than violence and cruelty. It is a life story of Christian devotion and forgiveness, qualities That Are Not usually associated with the Vikings, and includes the healing of the sick, crippled, blind and insane.
