Chapter Summary

The religious climate in early modern Norway can be characterised as restrictive, with greater inclusiveness only perceptible from a long-term perspective. Limited openness towards other Protestant confessions was a novelty of the latter stages of the early modern period. Peter Nørvig printed some of his books illegally, violating monopolies and privileges that were held by other printers and had been issued in order to control the market of print. Other strategies designed to regulate the book market were also introduced throughout the early modern period, including the direct prohibition of the printing, import or sale of books deemed harmful. The availability of books in Norway did not depend on market regulating forces alone. The various channels of distribution also contributed to determining the nature and number of works available to the population of early modern Norway.
