Söderblom ordered a new Episcopal cope for the 1925 Life and Work Conference in Stockholm. The cope was made after Söderblom's own instructions and is a visualization of Söderblom's ideas. His concept of evangelical catholicity and ecumenism, the continuity of the church and his view on episcopacy were transformed into a beautiful piece of art. With the cope, Söderblom expressed his view on the position of the see of Uppsala in Christianity and his own role and responsibilities among the church leaders of the world. The cope is an interpretation of Söderblom's theological and ecumenical concept.
