Abstract

A SCANDINAVIAN REVIEW. THE LITERATURE OF LEGAL HISTORY 1921-1922. Our knowledge about early Teutonic law is to a great extent founded on the laws of the Scandinavian peoples from the 12th and 13th centuries. These laws were produced at a critical period, when native institutions, the Roman church and a State constituted after partly foreign models fought for supremacy and consequently they do not contain a "pure" Teutonic law. At the end of the Middle Ages stability is attained and on this basis the following time builds. Roman law has indeed not been fully adopted but has had a most important influence especially in German revision. And after that during different times the co- difications of the leading nations have influenced the laws of the Scandinavian states. The Scandinavian peoples group themselves as follows. The highly civilized free state of Iceland surrenders to Norway at the end of the 13th century and follows that country into the union with Denmark a century later on. This epoch to Norway marks the end of a glorious past. Denmark is now the leading state in a union, which Sweden too joins and with Sweden Fin- land, which was conquered and civilized
