Trondheim and Nidarosdom #

by Werner Gobiet

The Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim Trondheim, Nidarosdom was built in 1070-1090 in honor of the Viking King Olav Haraldsson on his tomb of Trondheim. It is the northernmost medieval cathedral and is the most important (new) Gothic monument in Norway. The oldest surviving parts of the cathedral are from the 12th century: a Roman transept and the octagon on the east side. The essential parts of the cathedral are neo-Gothic. The dimensions of the dome are considerable: 102 m long, 50 m wide (including the transepts) and 21 m high.

From 1050 until the Reformation, the cathedral, with the grave of Saint Olav, was a popular pilgrimage destination. Today, the pilgrimage route from Oslo has been opened again.

After the Reformation, the cathedral was a ruin for a very long time, because several fires have seriously damaged the cathedral. It was not until 1869 that the restoration of dilapidated parts of the building began.
