Abstract [en]

Coming to age marks the end of childhood, but not of being someone’s son or daughter. This was especially true in a Lutheran patriarchal society like early modern Sweden, where the fourth commandment – “honour thy father and thy mother” – was also incorporated into secular law and “fatherhood” was the main metaphor for all authority, religious and secular alike. According to this ideology, a father’s rule over his household represented the most elementary and basic order of society. This was however not always a simple matter. A household among the landed farmers in most parts of Sweden and Finland typically included a husband, wife and minor children, and often as not, paternal or maternal grandparents as well. Regardless of whether the grandparents were retired or still working and in head of the household, the adult son or daughter and his or her spouse were expected to pay the elder generation due respect. The aim of this article is to discuss how the complexity of paternal authority which was thought to be the very foundation of social order, contributed to situations of ambivalent emotions and conflicts.
