Abstract [en]

The following bachelor thesis will focus on the Swedish Armed Forces and their military pastoral care in the otherwise secularized society and organization. What kind of duties does the chaplains and other chaplaincy have in the armed forces, why haven't the religious pastoral care been replaced with a secular alternative and how does their work stand against their own organization values? The essay will primarily focus on the works of parson Sten Elmberg that he, together with the Swedish Armed Forces, published during the years of 2000 til 2014. These publications focus on the Swedish Armed Forces foreign missionary during the 1990s in Bosnia and the 2000s in Kosovo.   The theory chapter of the essay is focused on the secularizationtheory from Rodney Stark and Larry Shiner together with the deprivationtheory from Charles Glock and Rodney Stark. The conclusion is that it is hard to replace the religious pastoral care with a secular alternative since the secular care are not as skilled in dealing with the questions of life and death as the pastoral care are and that is because of the deprivation theory the soldiers sometimes even asks for pastoral care. Further wise we can see that the duties are not focused on the religious questions even though the care is delivered by religious representatives.
