Stavanger, Norway - Scenic Beauty

Church, Scenic

In the center of Stavanger, at the north end of Kongsgata, stands the Cathedral, the most significant in Norway after Trondheim Cathedral. It was constructed at the end of the 11th century by Bishop Reinald, an Englishman also known as Reginald of Worcester, as a three-aisle Romanesque cathedral. The church choir was reconstructed in Gothic style after a fire in 1272, and the whole church was refurbished in the 19th century. Distinguished features of the interior are the luxuriously carved Baroque pulpit (1658), a stone font of the Gothic period and the tainted glass in the east window by Victor Sparre, 1957 depicting New Testament scenes.
