The green Bishop’s Slope in the western interior, near the Kaldidalur Route, is a place where a prominent Lutheran bishop died on August, 30th 1720. To commemorate this tragedy a crucifix was erected there in the early 20th century.
The bishop of the southern see, seated at Skalholt, Jon Vidalin, was on his way to attend a funeral of Rev. Thordur Jonsson, his brother in law, at the parsonage Stadarstadur on the Snaefell Peninsula. The bishop was suddenly taken ill and died almost immediately. This place was a place of rest enroute with a refuge hut, grazings for the horses and ample drinking water within reach.
