"The truth shall besides God's will always prevail." : The influence of natural law amongst some Swedish officers around 1700. (English)
Abstract [sv]

This study aims to describe the influence of natural law on the common concept of justiceamongst Swedish officers around 1700. Through this study I intend to establish that therewere discrepancies and expressions of other norms in 17th and 18th century military culture.Both from natural law but also from Christian belief. A secondary aim is to establish howsuch variances were manifested and how they can be explained.A few theoretical starting-points have been used as a guide in developing the purpose andrelevant questions for this study. I intend to describe the key features of the concept of naturallaw as thoroughly as needed, through relevant legal literature. The next step will be to mapthese outlines against texts from the time, through a qualitative close reading.This study has investigated, at least, seven diaries from the time. Through triangulation, crossanalysis and comparative interpretation, the results have been evaluated with the purpose ofcrystallizing a common synthesis. The result of these findings varies, but in my opinionnatural law had an impact on certain subjects in the Swedish Empire around 1700. This notionopens the way for interesting perspectives when trying to understand this period.
