Motivation: Arnoldson was one of the founders of the Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society, and he carried on a vigorous campaign for arbitration in his writings. He produced substantial works on religion and peace. When Norway began agitation for more equality with Sweden, Arnoldson supported Norway's position. In 1905 when Norway and Sweden came close to a military conflict over the dissolution of the union, Arnoldson stressed the importance of a peaceful solution. He also advocated permanent Nordic neutrality.
