The number of foreigners (2017: 4.4% of the population) is low compared to the neighboring countries Norway and Sweden. The largest group are Estonians (0.9%) and Russians (0.6%). Finnish is one of the Finno-Ugric languages and, apart from Estonian, is very distantly related to Hungarian. – Although the population has almost doubled since 1900, Finland belongs to an average (2017) of 18 residents / km 2among the most sparsely populated countries in Europe. The population density decreases sharply from the southwest to the north and east. In Uusimaa, the area around the capital Helsinki, it is 176 residents / km 2, in Lapland it is 2 residents / km 2.

Religion

The constitution (Article 11) guarantees freedom of religion. Religious policy is based on the Religious Law passed in 2004 (replaces the Religious Law of 1922 and contains, among other things, new regulations on questions relating to leaving the church, religious consent, special tax regulations, state payments to religious communities). Officially recognized by the state as “national churches” are the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church (Suomen Evangelis-Luterilainen Kirkko) and the Finnish Orthodox Church.

Almost 75% of the population profess Christianity. Around 72% belong to the Evangelical Lutheran Church, more than 1% to other Protestant faith groups (Pentecostals, Baptists, Presbyterians), over 1% to the Orthodox Church; the exemte diocese of Helsinki exists for the small community of Catholic Christians (according to their own information about 0.2% of the population). The Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church comprises nine dioceses. The Archbishop of Turku is Primus inter Pares (of the other bishops) and chairs the legislative church assembly (general synod with 109 members), which meets every four years.

Non-Christian religious minorities are made up of Muslims (estimated to be more than 1% of the population) and Jews. There are Jewish communities (each with a synagogue) in Helsinki and Turku; the first Jewish prayer room in Finland was set up by Jewish soldiers of the Russian army in the sea fortress of Suomenlinna in 1830. About 24% of the population have no religious affiliations. Check printerhall to see Finland Since 2000.

Finnish Orthodox Church

Finnish Orthodox Church, actually Finnish Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church of Finland; The seat of the head of the church, the “Archbishop of Karelia and all of Finland”, is in Kuopio; liturgical language is Finnish; Training centers are the Theological Seminary in Joensuu and the Orthodox theological faculty at the university there; an important spiritual center is the New Valamo monastery in southern Finland. The Finnish Orthodox Church has around 61,000 believers in three eparchies (Karelia [bishopric: Joensuu], Helsinki, Oulu). The head of the church has been Archbishop Leo (Makkonen, * 1948). – In connection with the process of the separation of Finland from the sphere of influence of the Russian Empire since the beginning of the 20th century and the finally achieved state independence, there was a reorientation of the Russian Orthodox “Diocese of Vyborg and Finland”, founded in 1892. It separated from the Moscow Patriarchate, placed itself under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate as the “Finnish Orthodox Church” and gained autonomy in matters of internal administration from this in 1923 (confirmed by the Moscow Patriarchate in 1957). After 1945 around 70% of the Finnish-born Orthodox left the area that had fallen to the Soviet Union as a result of the Second World War (Karelia). The Finnish state officially recognized the “Finnish Orthodox Church” in 1949 – in the same way as the “Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church” – as the “national church”.
