Chapter Summary

This chapter point out that Roos's books contributed to the forming of the community models of the Schartau tradition in its special combination of Orthodox principles based on the house hold, and Pietist conceptions or motivations based on the individual faith. In Christian literature, exempla or examples were developed in the established rhetorical method of Lutheran Orthodox sermons of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with a high frequency of various biblical examples, including male, female, and animal. The chapter focuses on the role-taking theory of Hjalmar Sundén, the Swedish psychologist of religion. It concentrate on Roos's Christliche Gespräche für Landleute, since it was probably of great estinfluence in the Swedish countryside. The influence of Magnus Friedrich Roos on the understanding of community in the Schartau tradition in Sweden has been wide and deep.
