This book is the first general survey in English of the history of the Finnish church. It is based on recent research, but written in a clear and accessible style. It presents a continuous narrative of the church in Finland, from the arrival of Christianity to the present day.

While the church in Finland developed essentially along the same lines as in other Nordic countries, there are some unique aspects deriving from Finlands location between East and West. Some distinctively Finnish responses to processes of modernization and secularization have left their mark on Finnish culture and society.
