Abstract

The Churches of Bornholm in the Early Middle Ages:
The architecture of the 15 12th-13th C churches of the island is seen as an expression of a feudal society dominated by king and archbishop. The towers are interpreted as local symbols of the feudal lordship, and the vaulted upper storeys as treasuries where the revenues - grain, pork, butter and herring - were stored.
