The Theological Line of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland in the Dialogue with Orthodoxy in the 2010s


The purpose of the article is to analyse the degree of theological diversity and coherency displayed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland in theological dialogues with different Orthodox churches in the 2010s. The ELCF engaged in a bilateral dialogue with the Orthodox Church of Finland and the Russian Orthodox Church. Theological diversity and coherency are dependent on the composition of the delegations, in which gender balance and the chosen theological lines both play a role. The chosen theological line and gender balance are also interwoven.
