Political Reform in Sweden

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

Abstract

The development of political reform in Sweden during the 'long' 19th century (1780-1920) was not straightforward. While the ties between church and state were in many ways successively loosened, they were simultaneously also tightened in some other areas. This article deals with The end of the Medieval Parliament, The Church Assembly and the Bishops' Conference, A New Constitution and a Reduced Nation, Religious Tolerance for 'Foreigners', Tolerance within the Lutheran Church, as well as with Social Reform, Church Building, and Financial Reform, and, finally, Loosening Ties but still Together: Oaths, Universities, a Diocese - and no Coronation.
