The Church of Norway has represented the main expression of religious belief in Norway for a thousand years. It has belonged to the Evangelical Lutheran branch of the Christian church since the 16th century, and has been a state church since then until 2012. Around 75 per cent of Norway's population are currently baptized members.

  • A Study Guide on Interreligious Dialogue

    The Theological Commission of the Church of Norway Council on Ecumenical and International Relations in 2008 published a study guide on interreligious dialogue. The study guide approaches interreligious dialogue with an open mind, searching to avoid dogmatic and unequivocal conclusions. With concrete examples as a starting point, readers are invited to reflect on what meeting people with different beliefs can mean for their own and the others' theology and praxis. Three main chapters consider three central issues: mixed marriages, prayer and religious symbols. Each chapter begins with a characteristic story and ends with questions for further reflection and discussion.
