Urnes Stave Church | Norway

Urnes stave church
Urnes - Norway

The church was built around 1130 or shortly thereafter, and still stands in its original location.

The church is believed to be the oldest of its kind. It provides a link between Christian architecture and the architecture and artforms of the Viking
Age with typical animal-ornamentation, the so called "Urnes-style" of animal-art. Archaeological investigations have discovered the remains of one,
or possibly two, churches on the site prior to the current building. The excavations uncovered holes in the ground from earth-bound posts which
had belonged to an early post church, a type of church with walls supported by short sills inserted between free-standing posts. It is not known if
this church had a raised roof above the central space of the nave like the present church. The earliest possible dating of this church is the early
eleventh century. In the 17th century the nave of the church, which is a raised central room surrounded by an aisle, was extended southwards.
Other elements were also added to the church, including a baptismal font (1640), a wooden canopy above the altar (1665) and a pulpit (1693–
1695). The altarpiece, which depicts Christ on the cross with the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist, dates from 1699. Windows were added to the
church in the 18th century.

Urnes Stavkirke is listed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List.

I like it. It's very quaint, and the setting is beautiful.
