Church and State in the Modern Age: A Documentary History

By J. F. MacLear | Go to book overview

nevertheless, the principle of a legal religious pluralism was acknowledged. Relaxation of rigor against sectaries was accompanied by greater self-government and lay participation within the Church of Sweden, notably in the organization of the Kyrkomöte, in the 1860s.

1. If Christian believers of another doctrine than the pure evangelical faith wish to unite themselves in a congregation, they should make application to the king and at the same time declare their belief and church order. If, after proper examination, the king finds reason to approve the application, such an authorized separate (främmande) religious body has the right freely to practice its religion within the limits set by law and morality. However, public church practices and religious services must be carried out only within the parish church, or chapel, or churchyard.

8. Adherents of separate confessions may not establish or open schools or other institutions of learning except for believers in their own faith or their children. If the contrary occurs, the school or institution of learning shall be closed and the director of the same shall be fined from fifty to three hundred rixdollars.

14. If anyone departs from the pure evangelical doctrine and disregards his pastor's instruction and warning he shall be admonished by the diocesan chapter or its authorized representative. If he persists in his error and wishes to leave the Swedish Church for a separate religious body, he should personally make application to the rector of the parish to which he belongs to have this recorded in the church registry. However, he shall not be considered separated from the care of the church before he has attained the age of eighteen and has been accepted by another authorized religious body.
