Chapter Summary

This chapter describes clearly that contemporary society was willing to change law to reflect changing power politics and the development of the learned law, even though the latter did not have the same obvious influence on the development of previous laws as it had in the development of the Law of Jylland. From the example of the Danish provincial laws we must therefore conclude that medieval man's idea of law was far from being as static as traditional interpretations have maintained. The chapter argues that Danish collections of law from the High Middle Ages reflect a conscious and intentional change in the administration of law.
