Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific


Jacob Ahlsman (1798–1872) from south-western Finland managed to rise from a beggar boy to the position of an ambulatory teacher at the time when the skill of writing was unusual among the common people. In 1858 Ahlsman published a 16-page tract entitled Jesuksen Kristuksen Sotamies (Soldier of Jesus Christ), republished in this issue with its numerous Biblical references. The text is preceded by an introductory article that throws light on the autobiographical context of the tract as well as its religious background, such as Herrnhutism and Prayerism.
