There is always something going on in and around a cathedral. Walk three times around one, and I am sure you have ideas for a series of blog posts.
Today I met my two best friends at the cathedral restaurant for a birthday lunch (worth its own post, but everything can´t be shared.....). After the lunsh we went out and met these two young men busy photographing the old stone wall of the cathedral. Curiosity got me and I asked: "What are you doing?"
Apparently they were happy about my question, and soon we were deep in a discussion about old stone mason signs on the cathedral walls, writings, cartoons, signs and so on, and today´s technology to discover the age of the different writings.
In a few years there will be a millenium since some people started to build a church upon St. Olav´s grave.
Since then hundreds of masons have left their personal marks.
All this history in the walls, in the old stones. All the life lived. Stone masons and other cathedral builders traveling through all of Europe, using their skills to praise The Creator.
