about

Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945 examines the evolution of the Lutheran state Church of Norway in response to the German occupation. While German Protestant churches generally accepted Nazism and state incorporation, Norway?s churches rejected both Nazism and ideological alignment. Arne Hassing moves through the history of the Church of Norway?s relationship to the Nazi state, from its initial confused complicities to its open resistance and separation. He writes engagingly of the people at the center of this struggle and reflects on how the resistance affected the postwar church and state.

Arne Hassing is professor emeritus of religious studies at Northern Arizona University.

Hassing's detailed analysis will undoubtedly be a major resource for future treatments of European church-state relations during the early twentieth century. - John S.
