Ett Jerusalem i Skåne

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk

Abstract

The parish church of Dalby is probably the oldest preserved church in Scandinavia and thus also the oldest building in Scandinavia that is still in use. Its construction began around 1060. Some features of the original church display influence from Northern Germany, more specifically Hildesheim; significant additions and alterations made in the 12th century display influence from the Cathedral of Lund. This article argues that several of the 11th- and 12th-century features were designed to evoke features of the holy city of Jerusalem, particularly the Temple of Solomon. At the end, the article presents Late Medieval objects of devotion that recall Jerusalem in different ways, and for different purposes.
