This paper examines the broadness of the Danish national church, by the establiment of the peoples church by the first constitution on the 5th of June 1849. By examining works of N.F.S. Grundtvig, H.N. Clausen and the debates in the newspapers Fædrelandet, Kjøbenhavsposten, Berlingske-tidende and Dagen in the beginning of the 19th century, related to the forcebaptism of Baptist children and holding it together with the legal handling of the pietistic movements and especially the Baptists, by the Kancelliet. It is established that the broadness of the national church, was closely connected with the demands of religious freedom in the early 19th century, but especially a consequence of an inefficient handling of the law and the needs of the state, combined with the contemporary demands, which from the begging of the 19th century and to the establishment of the people church in 1849, continuously made the broadness of the church wider and wider.
