Theological Construction in the Offices in Honour of St Knud Lavard

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

A discussion of the theology of the late twelfth-century offices in honour of the Danish patron saint Knud Lavard, asking to what extent this theology can be seen to have been underlined in musical representations. The theological tenor is on suffering as a consequence of evil and unprovoked aggression, verbally as well as musically. This is underscored by textual as well as musical analysis of central parts of the offices, focusing on the relationship between the responsories and the homiletic readings of the last Nocturns of Matins.
