This volume contains the proceedings from the conference ”How Nordic are the Nordic Medieval Laws” which was held at the Carlsberg Academy in May 2003 in Copenhagen and, now in this revised second edtion, much more.
The main theme of the conference was the Nordic medieval laws as seen in a European context, which again raised the question about just how Nordic these laws were. The problem was presented through studies of the Nordic laws as well as through parallel studies with contemporary Europe.
The first edition of the proceedings was published in 2005, but since then much has happened concerning our understanding of how Nordic the Nordic medieval laws were – or rather: how European the Nordic medieval laws were. Therefore this is not only a reprint of the proceedings published in 2005, since several of the articles have been revised and up-dated according to current knowledge.
Scholars and students of medieval legislation and legal history will find this book a useful contribution to the discussion about the character of vernacular legislation.
