Lekmannens plats i kyrkan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


The chapter emphasizes the historical position of the layman in the Church of Sweden as an independent complement to women and clergymen. Spiritual letters, funeral sermons, and fictional material are used as sources. During the nineteenth century the Christian layman was professionalised or specialised in a way that did marginalize him as the layman as such.
