Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Sweden, old universities has theology departments. Newer has departments of religious studies with a social science perspective. But the line is far from clear, theology and religious studies departments educate both religion teachers (junior high and high school teachers, where the goal of the subject is to educate about different religions) and priests, though it appears priests must finish their education in Uppsala or Lund, the two really old universities.

So there is probably some kind of scale from orthodox to reformed, with theological parts of theology departments at one end and very social science parts of religious studies departments at the other.
