Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to interpret early Swedish Lutheran pietism in a new framework: ore mining areas. In situations disrupted by war humans could discover themselves as individuals during the decades around the year 1700. The individual found himself no longer integrated in any secure form of community. This is recognized by earlier research. My intention is to analyse proto-industrial, ore-mining districts with agglomerations of miners as another area where the integration of the household did not work well in all respects. I focus my paper upon the case of the Copper-mining industry by the city of Falun. The local vicar Olof Ekman (1639-1713) has been pointed out as one of the big pioneers of Pietism in Sweden; a new form of spirituality that focused upon the internalisation of the Christian creeds and ethics. I aim to present a local programme for integrating individuals as an new way of creating order and discipline. An order that very well can be seen as anticipating more modern forms of social order in the Western world.
