Description - The Scandinavian Reformation by Ole Peter Grell
This volume provides a history of the Scandinavian Reformation from its evangelical beginning in the 1520s to its institutionalization by the mid-seventeenth century, when Lutheran territorial churches were established in the Nordic countries. It reassesses the role of the Catholic Church in trying to halt the Reformation and traces the evangelical movements in their social context, focusing on the relationship among church, state and society in post-Reformation Scandinavia, including such aspects as popular beliefs and official religion.
