Canute the Holy's Deed of Gift-letter to St. Laurentius Church in Lund 1085In the name of the holy and indivisible Trinity, the Father and Son and the Holy Spirit.
We want that everyone in Christ faithful to know how I Canute the fourth, son of King Magnus, after taking over the kingdom from my father, has donated St. Laurentii Church, located in Lund - although it has not yet been completed - forever to be a bride of the lamb that carries the sin of the world, holy to the holy, uninfected for the uninfected, worthy of the worthy.
But which and how this bridal gift of this church is, we have made clear, and with the following witnesses we wish that it shal be valid for the court and unwavering forever with those as witnesses: the bishops Rikwal, Svend and Sigvard, Hågen Earl, the priests Arnold, Theoderik, Henrik and Godskalk, the stewards Alle, Hågen, Peder, Svend.
It is thus the land, which Øpe Thorbjørnsen in Lund paid for his peace. In Sønder Opager takes four and a half a bol, in the other Opager as many bols, in Herrested eight bol, in Skælshøg two bols, in Flædie five and a half bol, which Hågen gave to the king, in Hildeshøg a half bol, in Håstad one bol in Gerd i Venested one bol in Skæftelyng a half bol in Søvested a half bol, which Skore paid for his peace, and in Karleby a half bol, which the same Skore gave the king for his peace, in Brønneslev a half bol, which the king redeemed from Thorgisl, Gunstens son, in Gudesbo in Sandby one bol. On Zealand in Ramsø township in Øm two bol, in Sømme township in Tjæreby two bol, Tune herred in Vindinge two bol, in Horns herred Skuldelev one bol, in Onsved a bol, in Smørum Small two Bol, in Lynge township in Børstingerød two Bol, in Jørlunde township in Tollerup, one bol, in Skenkelsø one bol. On the island of Amager in Sundbyvester five bols. In Brøndby three bols. Of the money given annually from the fields in Lomma three mark; of the same money in Helsingborg three mark, of the fields in Lund 21 mark.
If someone in his arrogance, of noble or non-noble birth, born or not born, puffed up by daring boldness against the holy learning wisdom's instructions strive to violate this contractual decision, he will be cursed by the Lord's return, he will be condemned to eternal punishment, where the worm does not die, and the fire does not extinguish. His table in front of him shall be a snare, to a retribution, and for a stumbling block with those, who said to God the Lord, "Depart from us, knowing your ways is not our desire."
But what belongs to the royal rights, of whatever cause it may arise in connection with the land mentioned, shall be given to the provst and the other brethren, who serve God in this place; Three offenses are excluded: If one becomes outlawed, he shall buy peace of the king, while his living place shall be given to the provst and the brethren, If he neglects leding, he shall pay to the king. They shall not supply horses for royal trnasport, unless the king comes himself.
Negotiated in Lund May 21 years in the year 1085 after the Lord's incarnation - in the lord King Canute's fifth year of reign, in the presence of and with the confirmation of the mentioned bishops, on our Lord Jesus Christ's measure, he, who is blessed in the eternities' eternity. AMEN.
