English Abstract.

Finland and the Finnish language influenced the Swedish clergyman Lars Levi,Laestadius (1800 – 1861) and the revival movement named after him, Laestadianism, despite the fact that Laestadius himself seldom visited Finland. This article uses examples from historians and Church historians to show the importance of Finnish influences on Laestadianism both in theological and political matters. Particularly strong influences on Læstadius were a new understanding of Lutheranism and fears connected to foreign policy in a time of nation building.

Key words (søkeord): Laestadianism, Lutheranism, nation building, foreign policy
