Norwegians are the most religious of the Nordic countries

In Norway, there are far more believers than in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, according to a new survey.


According to the study by the independent American think-tank Pew Research Center, 17 per cent of Norway’s citizens are strong believers. The same is true for 8 per cent of Danes, 10 per cent of Swedes and 13 per cent of Finns.

In the survey, the degree of religiosity is measured in all the European countries. Romania is at the top with 55 per cent strong believers, Georgia takes second place by 50 per cent, while Greece is in third place with 49 per cent.
