Christian Erik Fahlcrantz (1790–1866)

Fahlcrantz, Christian Erik (fäl’kränts). A Swedish poet and theological writer (1790–1866). He was a bishop in the Swedish State Church. His poem, ‘Noah’s Ark’ and his lyrico-epic ‘Ansgarius’ give proof of a lively fancy. He wrote several volumes of religious polemic; in particular one against the Roman propaganda, ‘Rome Formerly and Rome Now.’
