Chapter Summary

This chapter of medieval Danish legal procedure is intended for an international audience, its starting-point is the Danish tradition of legal history, which has informed and penetrated a large part of Danish historiography. In this regard it is also interesting to question whether the reform of religion that was introduced in 1536 in Denmark was immediately noticeable in the administration of justice and therefore this chapter will extend as far as the year 1558, when post Reformation legislation was compiled in the Koldingske Recess. There are two paradigms in Danish legal history: the traditional paradigm and the new paradigm. The traditional paradigm fundamentally is a part of the state-evolution, centre-periphery tradition, while the new paradigm focuses more on the power-politics of medieval legal development .
