Beskrivelse

The monograph deals with the relationship between law and religion through the historic prism of the Reformation in Denmark-Norway. The Reformation had a huge impact of the legal system, including the regulation of marriage, poor relief and crimes such as sexual offences, witchcraft and blasphemy which were transferred from the catholic Church to the state. This development will be analysed in the monograph through the following research question: How did the centralised government in Denmark-Norway regulate the areas which were transferred from church to state after the Reformation?
