Established in 1896, this paper is Christian in orientation and covers religion and ethics. It was founded in reaction to the coverage of a funeral ceremony sermon held for four drowned fishermen. The pastor felt his sermon had been misinterpreted and that he had been misquoted. The Inner Mission interpreted this as a need for a Christian newspaper. Kristeligt Dagblad is widely perceived as a quality paper which dedicates plenty of space to cultural issues as well as analyses and background reports. The paper has managed to keep its circulation steady at 26,000 copies for years. It is owned by around 3,000 shareholders. In the refugee debate it has adopted a conservative stance and warns against overburdening the Danish society.
