In a Christian burial, the pastor reads from Scripture about the Resurrection. After the burial, Christians often say: “Now he / she has reached the heavenly glory.” Is that a contradiction? In 2020, we celebrated one of the most significant hymn books in The Church of Norway, published in 1870. The editor, Magnus Brostrup Landstad, wrote many of the hymns himself. This article is a study of the eschatology in these hymns, with an emphasis on how Landstad combined the two motives.
