Vague ancient sources mention hermits in Iceland before Christianity was adopted and cloisters were established.

One of the stories tells us about Sagas of IcelandAsolfur Konalsson from Ireland.  He did not want company with pagan people.  Jorundur the Christian is also mentioned.  Mani the Christian is supposed to have built a church at Kolgumyrar in the Hunavatn-county and served there 24 hours a day.  Some female hermits are mentioned:  Gudrun Osvifursdottir (she was young when Christianity was adopted; Laxdaela Saga), Hildur, who became a hermit at the Holar Cathedral during the time of bishop Jon Ogmundsson, Groa Gissurardottir (Gissur was the son of Isleifur Gissurarson, the country’s first bishop), who reclused herself when she grew old at Skalholt, Ketilbjörg lived in recluse at Skalholt during bishop’s Pall Jonsson (†1202), and Katrin reclused herself at

Munkathvera before the convent at Reynisstadur, where she became the first abbess, was established.
