L’Église nationale

Den Danske Folkekirke (literally : The Danish People’s Church) is the established religion in Denmark (it gathers over 84 % of the population). Since the first Danish Constitution passed in 1849, this Evangelical-Lutheran church has enjoyed the privileges of a national church, with state financed education of ministers, state-governed church-taxes and as the facilitator of official national holidays. The vast majority of the Danes are members of the national church. Due to the very high membership rate and a wide reaching independence in the local parishes the church naturally comprises a large variety of religious worldviews, from liberal to conservative as well as minimalist to maximalist. The societal role of the national church is therefore regularly the centre of political debates. The ecclesiastical authority of the national church is for all legal purposes the Minister of Ecclesiastical Affairs.
