The Liber legis Scaniae: The Latin text with introduction, translation and commentaries forms the second volume of The Danish Medieval Laws and is dedicated to the Latin text based on the Danish medieval Law of Scania.
Also known as the âOld laws of Scaniaâ, The Liber legis Scaniae is ascribed to Archbishop Anders Sunesen and traditionally belongs to the corpus of Danish medieval laws. It was translated from Old Danish in the 13th century and until now has often been considered a subsidiary text. In this book, the importance of The Liber legis Scaniae is reexamined, and its role in the first redaction of the Danish medieval laws is revealed as far more central than previously thought. This is the first time the text has been translated into English and both the original Latin and the new English translation are included together.
Beginning with a detailed introduction providing key information about the text, its author, and its place in Danish legal history, and concluding with an extensive Latin-to-English glossary, this book will be ideal for students and scholars of medieval Scandanavian legal history.
