In the academic field, Per Ewert is mainly a historian. The book Sherlock: The case of the empty tomb may be read as either an adventure novel, or as a summary of the adademic discussion concerning the circumstances surrounding the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, by using the footnotes at the end of the book.

In his PhD project, Per studies the historical driving forces behind Sweden’s very high degree of secularization and invidualism. His paper Reformation turning secular: How Social democracy and a strong Lutheran state church made Sweden the most secular nation in the world  was presented at a conference at Sorbonne Univerity in Paris, december 2017.
