As one approaches Nidaros Cathedral, the edifice looms ever larger. A veritable colossus, despite its bulk the cathedral is overwhelmingly rich in detail. Considering the effect it has on us today, it is hard to understand how it must have appeared to ordinary citizens when it was completed in the year 1300 or thereabouts. One cannot help but wonder what prompted the raising of this 13th-century architectural masterpiece to the north in Norway.
