IV Re-confessionalization & Internationalization

Re-confessionalization and Internationalization (ca. 1914-today) begins with the twofold development of the Luther-renaissance and dialectical theology, concomitant with the democratic breakthrough within the majority churches of the Nordic countries and with a nearly unanimous support also from theological voices to the secularity of Nordic law. The introduction of Human Rights as well as principal distinctions between church and state, however, leads to a broader understanding of collective religious rights than was earlier common in the Nordic countries.
