Emilia Maria Fogelklou-Norlind (20 July 1878 in Simrishamn - 26 September 1972 in Uppsala, Sweden) was a Swedish theologian and author.


She studied in Uppsala (B.Sc. 1906) and then was a candidate in theology (the first female in Sweden, 1909) and an honorary doctor of divinity (also the first female, Uppsala 1941).

She had various teaching positions including as a lecturer at the teachers' college in Kalmar. After 1923 she took leave from lecturing to devote herself entirely to writing and lecturing. Later she lectured at the National Institute Hogre lararinneseminariet and at the University of Stockholm. She was a peace activist and attended the Women's Peace Congress (1915), also called the Hague Congress in 1915 and after the Second World War founded the Swedish Per Sundberg IAL. She collaborated with Nathanael Beskow in Birkagarden. In 1932 she joined the Society of Friends. She wrote many important religious writings. From 1922 to 1929 she was married to the geographer Arnold Norlind. Her book about him (Arnold 1944) are at the top of her authorship.
