The historian Martin Almbjär is writing about political communication in Early Modern society. More precisely he is working on supplications in the Age of Liberty (1718–1772). A short period of parliamentarianism in Sweden. Handing in supplications were a common (written) form in Early Modern Europe of making requests to the authorities – the Swedish Diet in this case. But the problem was that the parliament, which gathered only a few days every year, had hard times in making decisions.
