Towards Re-Sacralization of Nordic Law?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

2017 changed the legal status of the Church of Norway. Did it also change the legitimacy of law concerning or within the Church of Norway - from being delegated by law to becoming a new sort of Lutheran Canon Law, legitimized by human rights or by the gospel itself? Did the legal change also imply a development towards re-sacralisation of (the religious part of) Norwegian law?
