"I tro på släktets framtid": klerikal fascism, Sveriges Religiösa Reformförbund och den svenska kulturens förfall

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyse how a clerical fascist agent in Sweden, Sveriges Religiösa Reformförbund (the Swedish Association of Religious Reform, SRR), explained the alleged decline of Swedish culture during the years 1930-1945. I distinguish three factors - SRR's views of exegesis, race, and Jews - to scrutinise why SRR took that position. I argue that these factors were driven by a radical liberal theological project, characterised as a pursuit for a religious rebirth of Swedish culture, and interacted in the light of SRR's views of modernity. I also offer a brief discussion on the concept of clerical fascism in order to make a theoretical contribution to the fields of comparative religion and comparative fascist studies.
