Vicarages and Pastoral Culture in Suur-Kalajoki in the 19th and early 20th centuries

Dissertation in Practical Theology (work in progress)

Moreover, it is essential to characterize the specific cultural manifestations that became prominent regarding vicarages and pastors' way of life in Kalajoki area in Ostrobothnia - an area in which local revivalist movements were highly onfluential in the 19th century.
