In public media the COVID-19-pandemic has been framed as a crisis: The cause of social, economic and political crises as well as individual psychological crises. Whereas investigations in other national contexts point to the fact that the pandemic has given rise to a growing interest in religious activities and/or reflections, we find that only a very small minority of Danes are part of this trend. The articles in this special issue document that the majority of the Danish population has been worried about contagion risks. However, they also indicate that religion has played only a marginal role as a coping strategy. One explanation for this is the Danish population's high level of social trust and government trust. Nonetheless, our analyses indicate that this trust level currently is under pressure.
