In this seminal work, Sverre Bagge provides a detailed account of Norwegian state formation in the period from c. 900 to 1350, widening his perspective to include a discussion of the emergence of the medieval state and state formation in the Middle Ages in general.The primary objective is to examine Norway as a case that may serve to illuminate some general problems of European state formation in the period, problems related both to the formation of the European system of independent kingdoms within a common cultural framework and to the inner development of these kingdoms. The volume furthermore examines the changes that took place in the military, social-economical, ideological, legal and administrative fields between the first formation of the kingdom and the early fourteenth century which, according to common opinion, represents a peak in the development of a Norwegian state. The volume constitutes a vivid and compelling feat, offering a fresh and innovative approach to an important chapter in the history of Norway, while also casting new light on developments in the larger context of European history.

About the Author:

Sverre Bagge is Professor of Medieval History and Director of the Centre for Medieval Studies, University of Bergen

Review:

[T]he book will deservedly take its place as one of the most significant works published in the field; and it is certainly the most important book on the subject to date published in English... Bagge leads the reader step by step through the complex problems associated with the sources and their interpretation on military organisation, the importance of literacy and law and the development of Crown and Church as bureaucratic organisations. This is where Sverre’s main qualities as an historian come to the fore: he combines a clear logical and forensic examination of complicated issues with a talent for placing the Norwegian scenario within a wider Scandinavian and indeed European context. - Haki Antonsson, University College London, Reviews in History, December 2011
