This book contains the proceedings from the conference “How Nordic are the Nordic Medieval Laws – Ten Years After?” which was held at the Carlsberg Academy in May 2013 in Copenhagen.
This was the tenth in the line of conferences known as The Carlsberg Academy Conferences on Medieval Legal History.
The main theme of the conference was a return to the question raised at the first conference held back in 2003: The Nordic medieval laws seen in a European context. In the ten years since then the interpretation of the Nordic laws have changed from a specific Nordic to a more common European perspective, understanding the Nordic laws as part of a common European tradition. Thus, the traditional interpretation that the Nordic medieval laws were an expression of an ancient Nordic culture has been under change since the first Carlsberg conference and this book sums up the current stage of research.
