Summary and further discussion of the main thesis in the authors dissertation (Den gotiske labyrint. Middelalderen og kirkerne i Danmark; The Gothic labyrinth. The Middle Ages and the churches in Denmark, 1993). Monasteries in Denmark, their forundation dates, numbers, size, design, decoration and fixtures are used as a source to show when the power of the church was built up, changed and broken down, and why this happened.
