Christianity was introduced to Denmark in the 9th century by Ansgar, Archbishop of Hamburg-Bremen.

In the 10th century, King Harald Bluetooth became a Christian and began organizing the church, and by the 11th century, Christianity was largely accepted throughout the country.

The parochial council leads the practical business of the local church and decides employment of personnel, including the vicar(s).

The vicar is subordinate to the council, except in spiritual matters such as conducting church services and pastoral care.

Since the Reformation in Denmark, the Church has been Evangelical Lutheran, while retaining much of its pre-Reformation liturgical traditions.

The 1849 Constitution of Denmark designated the church "the Danish people's church" and mandates that the state supports it as such.

There are no archbishops; the most senior bishop (primus inter pares) is the Bishop of Copenhagen, currently Peter Skov-Jakobsen.

The further subdivision includes 111 deaneries and 2,200 parishes. Each parish has a parochial council, elected by church members in four-year terms.

The Church of Denmark continues to maintain the historical episcopate.

Theological authority is vested in bishops: ten bishops in mainland Denmark and one in Greenland, each overseeing a diocese.

Both parochial councils and vicars are, however, subordinate to bishops.
