Record Group 6: Scandinavian Augustana Synod

1860-1890

The Augustana Synod was formed from pietist Scandinavian elements in the new land. Initially a union of Swedes, Norwegians, and Danes, the Scandinavian Augustana Synod again split in 1870 leaving the Swedes with the remainder of the Augustana Synod and forming the Norwegian-Danish Augustana Synod. The group pioneered in ecumenical efforts, but records are scanty, merely the annual reports for the period 1861-1889. In 1890 the Norwegian-Danish Augustana Synod was absorbed in the founding of the United Norwegian Lutheran Church.
