This article analyses the events in Lund in 1852 and 1853 when the radical newspaper Fäderneslandet was started. The editor Nils Rudolf Munck af Rosenschöld represented an in many ways typical nineteenth century radicalism where the roots of society's evils primarily were political. His views on Swedish history, justice and the law, and sexual morals are in particular focus. It is argued that Nils Rudolf represents a radical democratic tradition which has been marginalised in dominant versions of Swedish history.
