Josias Cederhielm (1673-1729) was employed by the Swedish King Charles XII during the gret Nordic wars. He ended up as prisoner in Russia. He and his wife met the Pietism from Halle and he translated some of the books of AH Francke into Swedish. After his release after 13 years in Russia, he soon entered the Council of the King. He pushed for reforms of the Church in the line of the Pietistic program. He almost succeeded. On diplomatic duty in St Petersburg he also worked for reforms of the Russian Orthodox church in line with a German-Swedish theological and diplomatic program. The prince from Holstein would then have become Czar of Russia and King of Sweden. Cederhielm failed and he was deposed from all offices. His network in Swedish Parliament took revenge against Arvid Horn eleven years later
