Abstract [en]

This is an edition, with commentary, of a series of judicial accounts for the pro­vinces of Jämtland and Härjedalen, dating from 1601 to 1645. Jämtland and Här­jedalen are today parts of Sweden, but belonged to Norway until 1645. During the period in question, Norway was part of the dualistic unitary state of Den­mark-Norway. The present accounts were made by the bailiffs serving in Jämtland and Härje­dalen. They report fines collected by the bailiffs and the misdeeds people were fined for. The bailiffs were subordinate to the feudal lord residing in Trond­heim, who had the right to one sixth of the fines collected. The rest of the fines went, together with the accounts and other revenues and records as well, to the treasury of King Kristian IV in Copenhagen. Today all these records are kept in the national archives of Norway and Sweden. In the introduction, Per Sörlin describes and discusses the contents of the judicial accounts, the criminality they reflect, the social setting, the administra­tion in Jämtland and Härjedalen, along with other subjects. In the main part of the edition all text of the judicial accounts is transcribed. Two lists of so-called ‘fredsköp’ (purchases of peace), i.e. fines for eluding outlawry after the 1611–1613 war against Sweden, are included as appendices. These fines were paid by farmers of Jämtland who were punished by the Danish King for disloyalty during the war. Also included in the edition are an investigation of the feudal lords and bailiffs in charge in Jämtland and Härjedalen 1601–45, indices of place-names and officials, and a word list.
