Artist's Description

Most early so called “stave churches” in Sweden were built of wood and they have all perished. This one is made of stone and has survived to our time, nicely decorated.

The first church here, built in the 11th century, was replaced in the following century by the present one, built of limestone in Roman style.No exact year is known. Part of the very charming paintings in the apse are 13th century. Thick walls, small windows (now replaced) and a very narrow door tell us that the building could also serve as defense for the chieftain and his household, on whose land it was built.
