Title: Jyske Lov. Codex Holmiensis
Year: ca. 1479
Painter: Thomas G.
Denmark’s original and first law.
Here reproduced in a beautiful copy from the 14th century. Large initial ‘M’ to initiate the famous words: “Med Lov skal Man Land bygge” (English: “With law shall land [i.e. the nation] be built”) Jyske Law called together with Sealand Law and the Scanian Law of the landscape laws. Jyske Law is the only country of the Community laws which are dated but on the basis of the contents of the tough questions is estimated Jyske Law to be the youngest.
