Så skapades en biskop : om etablerandet av Växjö stift

Hansson, Martin LU (2016) In Mellan slott och slagg 17. p.75-82
Abstract
This article discusses the emergence of the episcopal see in Växjö. Contrary to previous research, which has been focused on written sources only, this article also discusses the archaeological record. The result implies that vivid connections between Scania, Denmark and southern Småland can be traced in the Late Iron Age and Early Middle Ages. This is shown by similarities in grave types, runic stones and medieval stone churches. The initiative for the new diocese can probably be found in regional elite groups acting in cooperation with the archbishop in Lund.
