Abstract

During the 1950s the Church of Sweden emancipated itself from the previously dominant German theological influence in church life. At the same time, the predominance from the Anglo-Saxon cultural sphere was strengthened. The Church of Sweden adopted a non-interventionist, often passive attitude about the political situation in Germany, even though, at the same time, many churchmen deeply opposed both the Communist dictatorship and the church politics which were being pursued in the German Democratic Republic. Relations with Germany were upheld both by personal contacts mediated by the „Union of Swedish Priests" and by a limited support of the Churches in the GDR, partly multilaterally through the Lutheran World Federation.
