Syftet med denna avhandling är att undersöka mötet mellan den kyrkliga överheten och de olika lokalsamhällena sådant som det tog sig uttryck vid de kyrkliga visitationerna. I fokus står biskopsvisitationerna men även de visitationer som prostarna genomförde tas upp till behandling. Undersökningsområdet är Växjö stift och den tidsmässiga avgränsningen är 1650-1760. De frågor som behandlas rör visitationernas frekvens, verksamheten och människorna vid dessa förrättningar samt de olika typer av sanktioner som den kyrkliga överheten kunde döma ut eller hota med vid dessa tillfällen. Även visitationernas relation till andra lokala arenor behandlas. Frågor rörande kyrkans ekonomi dominerar under hela... (More)

De frågor som behandlas rör visitationernas frekvens, verksamheten och människorna vid dessa förrättningar samt de olika typer av sanktioner som den kyrkliga överheten kunde döma ut eller hota med vid dessa tillfällen. Även visitationernas relation till andra lokala arenor behandlas. Frågor rörande kyrkans ekonomi dominerar under hela undersökningsperioden. Samtidigt kan vi se att de ärenden som handlade om samlevnad och ordning minskar, medan frågor rörande religionen, undervisiningen, prästernas ämbetsskötsel och fattigvården ökar. Jag menar att detta kan ses som ett tecken på en begynnande upplösning av den religiösa enhetskulturen. Även deltagandet vid visitationerna förändras. Det aktiva folkliga deltagandet minskar under loppet av undersökningsperioden samtidigt som närvaron vid dessa förrättningar minskar. Man kan alltså säga att visitationerna elitiseras under loppet av undersökningsperioden. Trots denna utveckling var det möjligt för vanliga församlingsbor att väcka frågor och framföra önskemål vid visitationerna under hela den undersökta tidsperioden. (Less)
Abstract
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the encounter of the ecclesiastical authorities with the local community, as reflected in the church visitations. The focus is on the bishops' visitations, but there is also a brief examination of the deans' visitations, which are used for a comparison of the two types of inspections. The geographical limit of the study is the diocese of Växjö in southern Sweden. The chronological framework is the period 1650-1760. If we look at the questions dealt with at these visitations, matters concerning the church's economy predominated throughout the studied period. We can observe a transition from matters to do with order and morals to those concerning religion, instruction, the exercise of office by the... (More)

If we look at the questions dealt with at these visitations, matters concerning the church's economy predominated throughout the studied period. We can observe a transition from matters to do with order and morals to those concerning religion, instruction, the exercise of office by the clergy, and poor relief. In my thesis I argue that this development can be seen as sign of an incipient dissolution of the uniform religious culture. In the beginning of the studied period, the parishioners participated in the visitations to a considerable degree. In the course of the period, active participation by parishioners declined. This, in combination with reduced attendance, suggests that the bishops' visitations gradually became more of élite affairs in the course of the period. Despite this, the parishioners always had the opportunity to pursue their own matters at these events. This increased distance between people and élite also contributed to the dissolution of religious uniformity. When the visitations no longer included all the people, this furthered the incipient dissolution of the prevailing religious culture. However, religion was still to play a major role for the people for a long time to come. (Less)
