HIS 3. The illuminated charter: visual splendor, performance, and authenticity of legal documents
This course introduces students who have previously only studied the palaeography and content of documents to the rich visuality of documents and the ritualised ceremonies of delivery. Charters not only have a content, they also have a form. Much of this is standardised, but some documents are characterised by rich decoration. It is therefore necessary to ask why certain documents have certain forms and whether this had legal implications for the content.

This course is related to the preparation of an international seminar on this topic here in Copenhagen. Students are cordially invited to use this seminar to deepen their own studies.

At the same time, students are familiarised once again with the techniques of historical work and the preparation of historical term papers.
