Dahl must have had goosebumps when he visited this church. Somewhere he writes that Norwegians know "the style and character of the brilliant Gothic buildings, whose magnificent remains can be found in Germany, France, England and Spain, but we still pass silently and uncaring by the great monuments that we ourselves have from our ancestors." (Quoted in Anne Eriksen's From Antiquities to Heritage 2014, p. 88.)
