When it comes to big questions in life, Kristeligt Dagblad has been the major Danish newspaper throughout its history. The words ”Belief, ethics and existence” are written on its front page, referring to three essential focus areas. Its editors work with determination to put current issues and debates into greater perspective through sober and trustworthy journalism.
Kristeligt Dagblad was founded in 1896 and has developed from a newspaper directed exclusively towards ecclesiastically interested people to being a cultural and existentialist newspaper with a special focus on literature today. In the last 20 years, the newspaper has doubled its circulation despite of a troubled newspaper industry in general. The newspaper reaches more than 100,000 readers daily and has a large readership online where 600,000 readers connect each month. Furthermore, the newspaper has its own publishing company with the same focus areas.
Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker became a shareholder in 1994 when the newspaper was threatened by closure, and the newspaper is today a well-run, profitable media company.
