Legation Chaplains in the Services of Imperial Envoys in Stockholm in the Second Half of the 17th Century
Languages of publication
The submitted study analyses the spiritual and secular activities of the legation chaplains within the structure of the imperial embassies in Sweden in the second half of the 17th century. The Catholic clergy, recruited mainly from the Society of Jesus order, exploited numerous tactics and strategies in the strictly Lutheran environment which were meant to secure the success of illegal activities often undertaken. In this light, legation chaplains did not act merely as obedient servants of the envoys, but also as representatives of one of the most important religious orders specialising in missionary activity.
