Exhibition: The road to the article

Contact information

Description

The exhibition The Road to the Article presents new evidence about the background of article 2 of the Norwegian Constitution of 1814. Few of the constitutional articles have been so much discussed as this one, which in the formulation from 1814 declared that "Jews are still excluded from entering the Kingdom."

Although there was not a single Jew in Norway, the provision was so important to the founding fathers that it was one of the Constitution's eleven tenets. Meanwhile, 1814 represents the emancipation of Jews in Denmark. 

The decision to continue the ban on Jews to enter Norway has since then been portrayed almost as an impulsive act. However, the ban was the result of a long preparation. The decision was driven by the Constitutional Committee, including some of the country 's leading intellectuals: Christian Magnus Falsen, Georg Sverdrup and Nicolai Wergeland.

New research makes it possible for the exhibition to position the introduction of this article as part of a  European debate. The exhibition tells the story of the road to the article.
