Two settlements are examined: the Swedish Templer Colony in Lebanon (1876-79), and the American-Swedish Colony, a religious commune in Jerusalem (1881-1960), within the analytical framework of Wright's and Tuan's Concept of geopietism and Guelke's idealist approach to historical geography. These pionnier settlements should be viewed within the backdrop of the changing religious trends and the forces of emigration in 19th century Sweden, concepts of the Holy Land, and the relationships between Swedish, German pietists, and American evangelists
