In the book series Svenskt Diplomatarium (Diplomatarium Suecanum), the Swedish medieval charters are edited in chronological order. The intention is to make the medieval texts, often difficult to read, as accessible as possible. The text editions are provided with a detailed summary of the contents in modern Swedish and accompanied by comments and notes.
The texts edited there are also accessible through the Diplomatarium Suecanum Main Catalogue (SDHK). SDHK contains information on more than 44,000 Swedish charters or charters relating to Sweden. More about the SDHK can be found via Digital resources in the left hand manu.
Additional information about medieval charters and the editing in the Diplomatarium Suecanum series is also accessible through the left hand menu.
The Diplomatarium books can be ordered through the
National Archives online store.
