As in most European countries the schools in Sweden historically have had close relations to the church. That was true to the medieval cathedral schools and to the first Swedish university, that of Uppsala founded in the 15th Century. That was also true when the 'gymnasia' were established in the 17th Century in the cities with cathedrals as a part of organising the Swedish 'empire' of that time preparing not only clergymen but also judges and officers for the new civil service. The lecturers of the gymnasia got their living as prebendaries of parishes around the cathedrals from that time into the 20th Century and formed the Protestant chapters of the dioceses of the Church of Sweden until the 1930s. The bishop was eforus (a kind of inspector) of the gymnasium until 1957.
