Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Sweden, I would divide it into two phases:

  1. About 1860-1960 the fight against the religious monopoly of the statechurch (Lutheran). Liberals, socialists and 19th century cultists against the conservatives and religious bureacracy.

  2. 1950 and onwards. The material wealth of the industrial society proves science as the mightiest god (its miracles are here and now). Secularism vs Christianity. The cultists switch sides and found the Swedish Cristian Democrats.
