Welcome to our International Conference, «Moster 1024 - Crossroads of religion and law in the conversion of Norway» at the University Aula in Bergen, 17th and 18th of April, with excursion to Moster 19th of April.
We are happy to announce the Conference «Moster 1024 - Crossroads of religion and law in the conversion of Norway», which will take place at the University Aula in Bergen, from 17th to 18th of April 2024. The conference will celebrate the 1000-year-jubilee of the first Christian Law of Norway and aims to present new trends in research relevant to conversion and Christian legislation in Norway and elsewhere.
The conference has an interdisciplinary approach and has attracted scholars from various disciplines relevant to the theme, such as archaeology, legal history (indigenous law as well as Canon law), history, history of ideas, manuscript studies, philology, and theology. Although the conference focuses on Norway and Norwegian law, presentations with a comparative perspective drawing on areas outside Norway has also been highly welcomed. The chronological focus of the conference is on c. 900 – c. 1200.
We are pleased to announce the following program and plenary speakers for the Conference:
