German and Scandinavian Protestantism 1700-1918

Nicholas Hope

Oxford University Press

Looks at the way parishes and pastoral care coped in hard times (Ch. 1) in the interdependent German and Scandinavian churchscape of the Baltic region. Belief in divine intervention and superstition was commonplace. Propagation of the Gospel and teaching the catechism, also as a way of raising standards of literacy, attempted to stamp out parochial ignorance.

Keywords:   Baltic region, catechism, divine intervention, Gospel propagation, literacy, parish crisis, pastoral care, Scandinavia, superstition
