✏The Danish Medieval Laws Book Summary : The Danish medieval laws: the laws of Scania, Zealand and Jutland contains translations of the four most important medieval Danish laws written in the vernacular. The main texts are those of the Law of Scania, the two laws of Zealand – Valdemar’s and Erik’s – and the Law of Jutland, all of which date from the early thirteenth century. The Church Law of Scania and three short royal ordinances are also included. These provincial laws were first written down in the first half of the thirteenth century and were in force until 1683, when they were replaced by a national law. The laws, preserved in over 100 separate manuscripts, are the first extended texts in Danish and represent a first attempt to create a Danish legal language. The book starts with a brief but thorough introduction to the history of Denmark in the thirteenth century, covering the country, the political setting and the legal context in which the laws were written. There follows the translated text from each province, preceded by a general introduction to each area and an introduction to the translation offering key contextual information and background on the process of translating the laws. An Old Danish-English glossary is also included, along with an annotated glossary to support the reading of the translations. This book will be essential reading for students and scholars of medieval Scandinavian legal history.

✏Law and Language in the Middle Ages Book Summary : Law and Language in the Middle Ages investigates the encounter between law and legal practice from the linguistic perspective. The essays explore how legal language expresses and advances power relations, along with the ways in which the language of law legitimates power. The wide geographical and chronological scope showcases how power, legitimacy and language interact, moving the discussion beyond traditional issues of identity or the formation of nation-states and their institutions. What emerges are different strategies reflective of the diverse and pluralistic political, legal, and cultural worlds of the Middle Ages. Contributors are Michael H. Gelting, Dirk Heirbaut, Carole Hough, Anette Kremer, Ada Maria Kuskowski, Anders Leegaard Knudsen, André Marques, Matthew McHaffie, Bruce O'Brien, Paul Russell, Werner Schäfke, and Vincenz Schwab.

✏Kinship in the Viking Diaspora Book Summary : The North Atlantic Viking diaspora in the medieval period has been of increasing interest to scholars, yet is an area that remains poorly understood. Through the lens of kinship relations, this book broadens understanding of the subject by testing the Norse North Atlantic against the modern sociological concept of diaspora. Using different theoretical approaches to social memory, social networks, oral history, migration and diaspora, the study draws upon the disciplines of history, anthropology and archaeology to interrogate a wide range of primary material, including medieval Icelandic textual sources like ÃÂslendingabók, Landnámabók, the ÃÂslendingasögur and the law codes, Grágás. By focussing primarily on Iceland as the locus of Norse diasporic memorialisation and the Icelandic Family Sagas (ÃÂslendingasögur) as repositories of social memory, it takes a fresh look at the role of kinship relations in the social processes of migration, settlement and the creation of identity. Divided into two sections, the first part of the book investigates the functioning of kinship relations across the Norse colonies of the West (Iceland, Greenland and Vínland), whilst the second part looks at the settlements in the East (mainland Scandinavia, Ireland and the British Isles). Focusing principally on the functioning of social memory - both remembering and forgetting - and its implications for the Icelandersâe(tm) conception of the Norse North Atlantic. The book argues that, in spite of strongly emerging individual identities across the Norse North Atlantic colonies, especially in Iceland, there were overarching cultural and familial affiliations that are reflected in the manner in which the maintenance and honouring of kinship relations transcended political boundaries. In so doing the book provides the first full study, using a multi-disciplinary approach, to establish the Norse North Atlantic as a socially functioning, viable, kinshipâeÂbased diaspora.
