Description

Hamar cathedral (Hamar domkirke) is the seat of the Diocese of Hamar, part of the Lutheran Church of Norway. The interior is characterized by an elevated nave, inspired by the basilica structure. The windows are decorated with fabric-like paintings, possibly based on medieval tapestries.

The central feature of the interior is the altar, which is possibly the most unusual feature of the cathedral. Henrik Sørensen's depiction of the resurrected Jesus Christ was inspired by a Nordic archetype.
