Swedish term or phrase: såsom de till grund för institutet liggande donationsbestämmelserna anger
I may be taking liberties with placing such a large phrase up for help, but I beg your indulgence. I really am stuck with this stifled text!

Sentence given:
"Styrelsen för institutet för religionshistorik och kulturhistorisk forskning sammansätts och dess medlemmar utses såsom de till grund för institutet liggande donationsbestämmelserna anger med beaktande av att delegationen utser minst en medlem och en suppleant."

(Yes, that is all just ONE sentence!)

Looks like the job I was offered last Friday! I said it was out of my league in Swedish, but here's how I would start breaking this sentence down.

Best of luck with the other pages...

Notes to answerer
Asker: I showed this text to a Swede and her eyes nearly fell out of her head! Perhaps I should specialise in old-fashioned Swedish.
