They are also found in five manuscripts, including one autograph, all post-dating the printed edition. Although not initially printed, translations of the collection also found their way to Iceland, circulating in manuscript. Given its popularity, the collection also inevitably found its way to Iceland, where it was translated into Icelandic in whole or in part five times The five translations are preserved in fourteen manuscripts altogether.
Presumably the reason for this omission is that the translator, a minister in the Lutheran church, disagreed with its message, that Christianity is no better than any other religion. Given that this is one of basic tenets of deism, a philosophy espoused by Voltaire, this is indeed a significant change. It is hardly surprising that this novel, so popular everywhere, became known in Iceland, given that part of it actually takes place there. But a good story remained a good story, even if some of its meanings failed to complete the journey. It is also striking how quickly things reached Iceland, often within a generation.
