Abstract [en]

The historical development of the Church of Sweden from a State Church to a Folk Church and the ”people’s church” is discussed. Since 2000 the limits of the Church of Sweden is regularized by a legislative act of the parliament, the ”Law related to the Church of Sweden” published in the Swedish Code of Statues (Svensk författningssamling). This essay emphasizes and interprets that the Church’s formal ”separation” from a relationship with the constitutional law and its alteration of the publish, establish status was contemporaneous with an inreased influence of the political parties of the Swedish parliament into all levels of the Church, avobe all in the Church Synod (kyrkomötet) and its board (kyrkostyrelsen). The Church is today official descripted as ”an open evangelical-lutheran people’s church” (luthersk folkkyrka).
