After an introduction to the use of the word artifact as it is defined by Brian Malley in his work on the Bible as artifact, follows a section on The Danish Hymnbook as Artifac, a section on The Danish Hymnbook between Artifact and Text, and a section on The Danish Hymnbook as Text. The article ends by the following conclusion: "In many ways the Danish hymnbook works like the Bible. It is treated as an artifact. It is used in rituals. And it has a great deal of authority due not only to these characteristics but also to the fact that it has the Bible as its dominant intertext both when it comes to contents and when it comes to form."
