Nidaros Cathedral / Nidarosdomen – Animation 3D
Norway’s national sanctuary, Nidaros Cathedral was built over the grave of St. Olav, Norway’s patron saint whose reputation shone far beyond the borders of his country.
Construction started in 1070, but the oldest parts still in existence are from the middle of the 12th century. Ravaged by fire on several occasions, the church was rebuilt each time – mainly in the Gothic style, but the oldest parts around the transept reflect the Roman style.
The west wall is the main façade of the church. The axis of the wall shows the crucified Christ in judgement; at the top, Christ enthroned in glory - the church was dedicated to Christ in medieval times, and was called the Church of Christ (Kristkirken in Norwegian). It is richly ornamented in stone, with magnificent stained glass windows from the 20th century.
From the 11th century until the Reformation this cathedral was an important destination for pilgrims. This tradition has been revived with the opening of the pilgrim way in 1997.
