Lars Roar Langslet was a Norwegian politician for the Conservative Party. He attended the 1969 Bilderberg meeting a few months before being elected to parliament, and also attended the 1970 Bilderberg meeting.


During his conscription, Langslet completed the Norwegian Armed Forces' Russian course; a large proportion of those who have completed this (intelligence connected) course hold key positions in business, public administration and academia. He went on to study Intellectual history at the University of Oslo. As a student, Langslet was chairman of the Norwegian Students' Society for a period in 1960. He was also editor of the liberal-conservative journal Minerva from 1957 to 1968.

Langslet converted to Catholicism in 1963.[1]


His political career started as a member of parliament for Oslo. He sat in parliament for 20 years, from 1969 to 1989. Here he was chairman of the Church and education committee 1973-1980. Langslet was also a member of the Conservative Party's Central Board from 1970,[2] and one of the party's most important ideologues[3].

Langslet was minister of culture and science in Kåre Willoch's government from 1981 to 1986.


He wrote thirty books, biographies and political essay collections and countless articles and columns.[4]

From 1989 to 1990 Langslet was culture director in Oslo and then a writer in Aftenposten from 1990. He was awarded a state scholarship in 1997.[2]
