The article explores the metaphor 'living ruins' in relation to the representation of tradition and culture in the morality and religion of the Nordic societies and in relation to the Nordic rule of law. The article discusses the deconstruction of the traditional Lutheran Nordic countries in modernity. It suggests an explanation for the late modern situation of the morality of the Nordic societies, and questions the modern framework of the quest for the objectively true concerning views of life. The main focus is the interpretation of this deconstruction in and via language. The article draws on Göran Bexell's investigations of moral lanugage and on the confrontations with the secularized understanding of society of Jeffrey Stout and Stanley Hauerwas.
