German term or phrase: Erlösungsbewusstsein
Hello all! This time we're in Sweden - well, almost!

Gustav/Gustavus I is rushing to the aid of Protestants in Germany during the Thirty Years' War... but what is he full of?
"Mit protestantischem Sendungs- und **Erlösungsbewusstsein** eilt er den Protestanten im Reich gegen den kaiserlich-katholischen Zugriff zu Hilfe."

Many thanks!
