Rosekyrkja – The Rose Church

The Rose Church in Stordal

The Rose Church is an octagonal wooden church dating from 1789 C.E. It is famous for its wall paintings which cover the whole church’s interior. The paintings depict scenes from the Bible and stylized floral decoration in typical Norwegian style.

For those interested I’ve scanned some information about The Rose Church. It’s two PDF-files, one in English, the other in Nynorsk. The Rose Church is not a stave church, but I’ll publish it in my Stave Church section anyway, so that it’ll be easy to find for the many people that are interested in such buildings.
