    ”I will count the bodies of the heretics I have burned… and for each one I bring a smile on the lips of Atom”: En tematisk analys över religiösa rörelser och livsåskådningar i dator- och tv-spelet Fallout 42017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Spoiler Alert! The purpose of this essay is to analyze how religion and life philosophies are expressed and which funtion they have in the video- and computer game Fallout 4. This purpose will be achieved by looking into the religious movements that exists in the game. The method used is a thematic description with comparative appropriation and the essay was based on the following issues:

    • Which God-image and cosmology characterizes the movements?
    • How are the movements organized?
    • Which ethical and political bases does the movements rest upon?
    • In which way(s) are the movements presented, in a negative or positive way?  

    The basic conclusion is that the game contains several movements which are all different in some ways. Some are more similar than others while some are more different. The most common property is the belief of something itself, they are all expressing some kind of belief. The movements degree of organization varies. Some are far more structured than others. They do all have different purposes and goals which also make their ethical och political bases varying. The movements are mostly presented in some negative way but some are also presented in postive ways. The way the movements are presented in are therefor also varying.

    Med Guds hjälp?: En kvalitativ studie över tjänstgörande karoliners uppfattningar om det stora nordiska kriget och Karl XII2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With Gods help?

    A qualitative study of Carolean's perceptions about the Great Northern War and Charles XII

    The purpose of this thesis is to investigate what perceptions Charles XII’s Caroleans had about him, the Great Northern War and how these perceptions changed during the war. There is also an underlying ambition to show how these perceptions differ. The underlying issues for the thesis are thus:

    - What perceptions/opinions describes the Caroleans of Charles XII as a person and leader?

    - What perceptions are described about the war as a whole?

    - In what way do perceptions concerning loyalty and hopes change during the war?

     

    The theoretical point of departure of the thesis is briefly the fatalistic beliefs and image of the King as the elect of God. A majority of the Swedish army was characterized by this approach and based their experiences and values on it to varying degrees.

         The methodology in which the essay's research is based on are threefold and consists of narrative diary analysis, microhistory and mentality history.

         The study is based on a source material composed of six diaries from six of Karl XII’s Caroleans with varying positions. Based on analyzes of these diaries, each individual’s experiences and perceptions have been distinguished and reported.

         The conclusion of this result is that all of the mentioned Caroleans hulded a great respect for the king and saw him to varying degrees as a role model and the election of God. As the result shows they did not hold him personally responsible for the end of the war, likely due to the fatalistic beliefs that’s already mentioned.

         Perceptions of the war in whole occur to some extent but not to the extent expected. From this point of view, the chosen Caroleans were fairly value-free. During the war, one can clearly see that perceptions and hopes changed. This change is strictly linked to the Swedes pros and cons in the war.
