Full title:
The truthful ordinance that was agreed and confirmed on the last day of the Council of the Realm’s meeting in the city of Odense concerning how church services may be held in Denmark and Norway and in the Dukedoms of Schleswig Holstein.

Full title original language:
Den rette Ordinants som nu sist paa Herre dage y Ottense bleff offuer seet oc besegelet, Huorledis Kircketiennisten skal holdis udi Damarckis oc Norges Rige, oc de Hertugdomme Slesuig Holste.

Abstract:
This ordinance outlines the book policy of Denmark-Norway within the framework of Protestantism, indicating which Christian books were appropriate and emphasising that all future books would have to be approved by the University of Copenhagen before being put on the market. One of the lasting effects of the ordinance was the centralisation of the Danish-Norwegian printing industry in the city of Copenhagen.
