Ms 63 Norigis Laugbog 1

This manuscript, also a Danish translation of the Landslǫg from around 1600, is a good example of an early modern register in a law book. After the prologue to the Landslǫg, we find a long list of the contents of the law, that functions much like a modern day contents page. Each section of the law book is broken down into chapter headings and numbers. Each entry for a chapter heading is prefaced by “Om” (about), followed by a very short description of its contents. At the end of the contents pages, the body of the law code begins.
