Trondheim Cathedral, Norway - Church

Church, Monuments

Trondheim Cathedral was constructed by King Olav Kyrre (1066-93) over the burial place of St Olav and significantly enlarged after the organization in 1151 of the archbishopric of Nidaros, with influence over the whole of Norway. In conception and execution it is the most wonderful church in the Scandinavian countries. The transept and chapterhouse are in a Late Romanesque halfway style subjective by the Norman architecture of England, and the fine Early Gothic vaulted octagon dates basically from the same period. The long choir, with the gorgeous south entrance way, was constructed in the early 13th century, the colossal nave and the tower, also in Gothic style, between 1230 and 1280.
