Religion

Christianity did not reach Norway until late in the eleventh century. Approximately 89% of the population is now a member of the Evangelical Lutheran state church. The organization is divided into 10 dioceses. The king is head of the church. Many Norwegians adhere to other recognized religious organizations such as e.g. the Pentecostal church. In addition, there are separate Evangelical Lutheran free churches, Methodists, Baptists and Roman Catholics (over 35,280 members); the latter church has a bishop in Oslo.
