The conference is part of the CAS project Social Governance Through Legislation, led by Erik Opsahl (NTNU) and Jørn Øyrehagen Sunde (UiO).

Medieval legislation or law books from the Middle Ages saw a long history of impact throughout pre-modern times. However, references to medieval legal texts were often kept in the modern era also, in some regions particularly strongly. What did medieval legislations mean to modern interpreters? This conference focuses in a comparative manner on the many national or territorial approaches on the relationship between medieval legislations seen together.
