Protestant Nations Redefined : Changing perceptions of national identity in the rhetoric of the english, dutch and swedish public churches, 1685-1772

This study in comparative conceptual history reveals how the concepts of nation and fatherland were redefined within public religion in eighteenth-century England, the Netherlands and Sweden, leading to more positive and inclusive conceptions of nationhood and the gradual reconfiguration of national identities in more secular terms.
