Abstract
In 1527, the diet of Västerås summoned by King Gustav Vasa (1523—1560) passed a number of decisions which in fact marked the beginning of the Reformation in Sweden. Scholars have paid much attention to the role of the Crown, the nobility and the clergy in the Swedish Reformation, but the role of the burghers has been studied less intensely. Basing on the sources, especially on the town memory books (tänkeböcker), the present study demonstrates that also the Swedish burghers played a significant role in the events of the Reformation — especially, in the reduction of church property. However, the role of burghers in the Reformation was not as great in Sweden as for instance in Germany and Switzerland. An interesting fact is that reforms not only introduced changes in the Swedish towns, but also enhanced certain processes which had already begun before the Reformation.
