Sven Göransson (1910-1989) was professor in Church History at Uppsala university 1956-1977. This study analyzes Göransson's research and the driving forces in his work as a Church historian. His work begun with a series of books on the relation of Church and state in Sweden in the 17th century. Inspired from Church historians in France (H.C. Puech, G. Le Bras and other) Göransson examined how religion/Church functioned socially and culturally in society, and the impact of the existing churches in the country on the history of people. As time went on he became primarily interested in a docusssion on Church, state and society relations from the Weimar Constitution to the then divided Germany, and on the fundamental experiences that influenced the conditions in Sweden. He was convinced that a society could not understand itself unless it had a living historical memory, and that the Swedish social history to a large extent also included the history of the Church and vice versa.
