Bäckaskog - a Norbertine Abbey in the Circary of Denmark and Norway

With Bäckaskog as a starting point I have studied the changing relationship between the Norbertines and the secular power, during the age of the Backsteingotik, and the consequences for the Norbertines in the eastern part of the Danish – Norwegian circary. In the study different methods and sources were... (More)
