    Pastoral and bodily care in religious houses and churches

    This article compares endowments given to religious houses and churches in the periods 1282 to 1314 and 1401 to 1410. In the first period the pattern was for a testator to donate a large sum to one main recipient for his burial place and several smaller sums in money to diverse recipients for chantry prayers. Many of the latter recipients were monasteries and convents, especially of the mendicant orders. These recipients ceased in the second period when instead a sole recipient stod for all pastoral care. During both periods women and men gave more poperty and more frequently to monasteries belonging to the Cistercian order than to the mendicant orders.

       The yield from designated farmsteads financed the gifts during the first period, especially when the gift finally was given in coins. In the first period the receiver only aquired perpertual right to the yield when a chantry (prebenda) in a cathedral or in a monastery was established. In contrast, in the later period the receiver almost always got such a right. In the former period this only happened when a donator who had received bodily care had died. In the 15th century the right of possession was trasferred foremost to monasteries, not only when the donator sought bodily care but also when seaking such pasoral care as chantry prayers, masses, month-minds, year-minds and intercessionary prayers.  When yield paid for the care it seems that it was easier for the donators to turn to the mendicant orders than it was in the 15th century. None from any of the Franciscan orders then received possession of landed property, as expected. But some female Dominicans and the John Baptist brethrens from the town of Eskelstura received landed property during this later period too.

    Abstract [en]

    The Cold War brought a competition of political systems between East and West. This battle was also waged on a discursive level. In this article the German question is investigated from a linguistic perspective by analysing the names used for both German states in political documents, and in press, informational and educational materials. By using different names such as the German Democratic Republic (GDR/DDR), East Germany, the Zone, the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG/BRD), West Germany and the Bonn Republic, the states were able to position themselves and simultaneously call into question the legitimacy of the other Germany. The names chosen were deliberate speech acts and part of the antagonism that characterized German-German relations until unification in 1990. A diachronic study of how the state names were used in the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic therefore illustrates the relations between the states. The uses of German state names by other nations were also perceived as political statements. Neutral Sweden was caught in the middle of a German German power struggle. Although the Federal Republic of Germany was certainly the more important partner, with a stronger influence during the period as a whole, the GDR nevertheless served as a role model in several areas. The article sheds light on Sweden's view of divided Germany during the Cold War by examining how both German states were portrayed linguistically in Swedish public discourse between 1949 and 1989. The analysis shows that the German-German context involved regular wars of words, where the use of a name could prompt both domestic and foreign policy conflicts. The names of East or West Germany had political significance and were also explicitly agreed on in different contexts. The Swedish materials show a more pragmatic approach. Names were increasingly chosen to suit the context of communication and consideration of the German-German name preferences seemingly played a subordinate role. However, the study demonstrates that name practices changed in accordance with the political debates caused by the German question. The attempt to portray the two German states as equal regardless of context, which started in the late 1960s, is remarkable. The use of state names in the respective public discourse of the states reflects the balance of power and interaction of the Cold War. The study illustrates clear differences in how the two German states were portrayed linguistically in the Federal Republic of Germany, the GDR and in Sweden. But in spite of differences, the same image was evoked West Germany was portrayed as the real, prototypical Germany, whereas the GDR assumed more of a divergent status.

    Sveriges tidiga formella penningväsende2015In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 135, no 3, p. 377-400Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats analyserar framväxten av ett formellt penningväsende i Sverige 995–1525. Ett av de tidigaste tecknen på monetarisering inträffade under andra halvan av 1200-talet och innebar att betalningar i bevarade källor huvudsakligen anges i mynt som räknats i stället för att vägas. Skillnaden mellan ett mynts nominella värde och dess värde som silver utgjordes av slagskatt. Myntförsämringen under 1300- och 1400-talen motverkades av att silvrets köpkraft ökade kraftigt.

    Abstract [en]

    A Gustavian brew: gender divisions and drinking customs in the upper strata of Swedish society ca 1772–1809

    The article explores the drinking habits of the Swedish elite of the Gustavian era (1772–1809), examining whether the contemporary changes in the perception of gender, as described by e.g. George Mosse and Thomas Laqueur, can be seen in the field of alcohol consumption. To answer this question a number of journals, diaries and memoirs from the late 18th and early 19th centuries have been examined. These texts, written by three women and eleven men from the upper strata of society, reveal that there was little segregation along lines of gender where the drinking culture of the Gustavian elite was concerned. Women were expected to consume smaller amounts of alcohol than men, but men and women habitually drank together and there was very little moral indignation over female drinking.

    There are, however, a few brief mentions in the consulted texts where a different approach to alcohol and gender can be discerned. These are instances where men actively and deliberately excluded women from their drinking bouts, creating exclusive male spaces for alcohol consumption. This homo-social drinking pattern seems to emanate from bourgeois rather than aristocratic circles.

    Although the details of elite drinking culture remain shadowy due to the scarcity of previous research, the results of this investigation indicate that the drinking habits of the Gustavian elite were more in line with what Laqueur has termed the “single-sex” model than with the 19th-century ideology of separate spheres. The difference between men and women was – when in came to drinking behaviour – a difference in degree, not a difference in kind.

    The article closes with the suggestion that women’s consumption of alcohol became the object of moral condemnation later than has been previously assumed. As an example of this case is related where an account of female drinking during the Gustavian era was censored as late as 1908.

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel ges en deskriptiv översikt över hur möjligheten att köpa på kredit – på avbetalning eller på kort – bidrog till att forma efterkrigstidens konsumtionssamhälle i Sverige. Bland annat riktas ljuset på de olika motiven för att begränsa kreditgivningen genom särskild lagstiftning och på framväxten av kreditupplysningsregister. Redogörelsen visar bland annat att kreditkonsumtion inte blev en partipolitisk fråga förrän på 1970-talet, efter att Kooperativa förbundet hade övergivit sin restriktiva linje.

    Abstract [sv]

    I fokus för artikeln står den historiska framväxten och utvecklingen av stereotypen om ”den svenska synden.” Denna historiska koppling mellan nationalitet och sexualitet studeras med hjälp av det analytiska begreppet ”the Sweden-sex nexus”, varigenom både svenska självbilder (autostereotyper) och utländska intryck av Sverige och svenskarna (xenostereotyper) kan inkluderas i analysen. Med detta som utgångspunkt ställs frågan: på vilka sätt kan orientalismens välutforskade sexualisering av Orienten användas för att historiskt belysa den populära diskursiva kopplingen under efterkrigstiden mellan ”Sverige” och ”sex”? Svaret söks både i officiella svenska självbilder och i utländska tolkningar; å ena sidan genom studier av Svenska institutets arkiv, och å den andra genom analyser av några längre utländska utläggningar om den svenska sexualiteten. En slutsats är att kopplingen i fråga har tjänat till att bekräfta väletablerade tolkningar - både inom nationens gränser och utanför - av Sverige som moderniteten inkarnerad. I detta sammanhang har den försett både konservativa och radikala modernitetskritiker med en sexualiserad ”Nordlig Andre” (Northern Other) vars funktion i mycket liknat den som den sydliga ”Orientalen” haft - även om de tillskrivna egenskaperna hos Nordbon och Orientalen i det närmaste utgjort varandras motsatser.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores four political debates in the Swedish diet and among the ruling elite in Stockholm on the organization of public services. The results demonstrate how in different ways notions of the common good permeated the discourse on all occasions.

    When the Swedish government tried to initiate public street lightning in Stockholm in 1749, there was a broad consensus among government and city officials that this should be done by the creation of a municipal organization financed by tax income. The burghers of Stockholm, however, opposed the proposal and argued that they were themselves better suited to care for the streetlights. The common good should be provided by individual action of responsible, male householders. Eventually the burghers got the upper hand and public street lightning continued to be organized by private initiative until the mid-nineteenth century.

    When in the 1720s the Swedish diet discussed the lease of custom duties by a merchant consortium (Sw. generaltullarrendesocieteten), the problem of corruption emerged as the bone of contention. Proponents claimed that this form of private enterprise was an effective means to suppress widespread corruption among state officials. Their opponents argued to the contrary that private leaseholders would skim off the profits for themselves, thereby depriving the state of its income.

    In the mid-eighteenth century the city authorities in Stockholm debated whether the emptying of latrines should remain an individual concern or if it should be recognized as a public matter. The city officials at first decided that this task was indeed a matter of public concern that should be handled by private entrepreneurs. Within a few years they had changed their minds, however, proposing instead that a new communal organization should be created for the removal of city waste. By now, the ruling elite of Stockholm had begun to identify the common good with municipal direction.

    The development of railway infrastructure was a hotly debated subject in the Swedish diet of the 1850s. Some representatives argued that private entrepreneurs would provide more cost-effective solutions than publicly managed railways, while others claimed that the state must administer a national system of railways. In the debate, private self-interest was juxtaposed with equal access to the common good. The proponents of state intervention claimed that national concerns must have priority over financial gain, and this argument would eventually influence the final decision.

    By the middle of the nineteenth century there was a growing consensus among the ruling elites in Sweden that the common good could best be provided for by state or municipal initiative. In the debates, arguments about organizational efficiency and equal access to public services eventually won out over notions of individual responsibility and private enterprise as a better alternative to corrupt government. In the late twentieth century the debate had shifted radically, however. The reasons for this shift will be the subject of our future research.

    Från vit slavhandel till trafficking: En studie om föreställningar kring människohandel och dess offer2009In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 129, no 3, p. 429-443Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares the contemporary Swedish conception of human traffickingwith the early twentieth-century conception of so-called white slavery. The studyfocuses on the causes, solutions and victims of trafficking and how the image ofthese three has been constructed over time. There are noticeable similaritiesbetween the discourses surrounding these aspects in the past and in the present.The debate concerning white slavery has been investigated by analysing materialfrom the association Vaksamhet (i.e. Vigilance), which was active in the struggleagainst prostitution of Swedish women abroad in the early twentieth century. Thecontemporary debate has been studied through official material published by theSwedish government and the police. Today’s attitudes regarding trafficking arenot new. Still, the issue is basically addressed in the same way today, as it was inthe beginning of the 20th century. The reason for this continuity over time has todo with the prevailing Swedish conception of prostitution, as well as the moralsconcerning women and sexuality.
