Abstract [en]

Four Nordic scholars provide historical context for contemporary developments in the folk churches of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Other chapters address major issues of concern both shared and unique to their churches. Their differing roles on the political stage during World War II and the Cold War, their adaptation to the modern welfare state, their handling of theological controversies such as the ordination of women and same-sex unions, and their crucial contributions to the ecumenical movement.
