  Oslo Domkirke
by bpwillet
 
 

Principle church for the diocese of Oslo, the church was begun in 1694. Built in stages and despite constant renovations, the original interior of the 1720s is now a version of Baroque. The pulpit is original dating from 1699. During many of the renovations decorations from the 18th century were discovered and are now on display. The ceiling is more modern, from the 1930?s and unfortunately has covered up the original artwork there. There are some impressive stained-glass works by Emanuel Vigeland. Picture taking is not allowed.
