Topic: Thing (assembly)


  
  Thing (assembly) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The thing was the assembly of the free men of a country, province or a hundred (hundare/härad/herred).
The thing met at regular intervals, legislated, elected chieftains and kings, and judged according to the law, which was memorized and recited by the "law speaker" (the judge).
The assembly of the thing was typically held at a specially designated place, often a field or common, like þingvellir, the old location of the Icelandic Thing.

The Thing, from the time it was opened until it was dissolved, was during pagan times under the protection of the gods.
The resolutions taken at the Thing were finally confirmed by the vápnatak (weapon-taking), for, as we know, the thingmen during the deliberations put away their weapons, and by again taking them up and shaking them they declared matters settled and the Thing dissolved.
