Finnish Women Making Religion--Between Ancestors and Angels displays a wide range of Finnish women’s historical and present-day ways of making religion, within religious institutions, on their margins, and outside. Finnish women have often been described as hard-working, strong-spirited, and independent. Therefore, it may come as a surprise that only for a relatively short time women have had the same rights and positions as men in the field of official religion in Finland. Nevertheless, Finnish women have always been very active and resourceful in their religious roles both in public as well as in private life. The twelve chapters of the book explore the complex intersections that Lutheranism, the most important religious tradition in Finland, has had with other religions as well as with the larger society and politics.
