      And then FINALLY, these are the final three close ups from that day:

        #1194 is St. Michael, seen with a spear and shield. He was considered to be the chief archangel, and fights against evil, symbolised by the dragon. But over time, St. George became the more popular saint with similar symbolism. The balance on the shield has something to do with weighing souls on the day of judgement – sorting out the blessed and the damned.

        In #1197/2, Michael appears again as part of a representation of the last judgement, and showing the weighing in the balance actually taking place! The upper part of the last judgement depiction is shown in #1199/2

        #1198/2 is King Hezekiah, a king of Judah.

        Yes, that’s Adam and Eve in #1201, and the other figure is the angel who is expelling them from paradise. The two kings below are Uzziah and Solomon, holding his temple.

        Apart from my favourite saint, I must say I am especially fond of the first of your "more stranger looking beings" (#1196), and the creature in the last image.

          Nice shots of a beautiful cathedral.

          Now, the very first humans on Earth Adam and Eve got three children, all boys; Cain, Able and Seth. Then what...?
          Some say 'oh, they married and had children'. Ok, initially there were five humans on the surface of the Earth, in a family. To whom did they merry??? Just wondering
          "IF GOD COULD MAKE ANGELS...., WHY IN HELL MAKE MAN?"

            I tend to only be interested in and know about and the 'who'’s who' of religions through the iconography. So, seeing the wonderful west front of this cathedral, it interests me to identify the sculptures from the attributes associated with the various saints - Cecilia, the patron saint of music holds an organ for example. Then the artistic creativity of sculptor or artist starts to become interesting e.g. in the depicted facial expressions of people whose appearance is not known.
            Some sense or experience of place I find stimulating too - St Paul becomes slightly more interesting for my having been to Ephesus and Corinth and the mythology recounted by Homer for having voyaged by sea around the Mediterranean.

            So I am hardly the person to answer your question Sterkoder, but I nevertheless vaguely recollect something about this (probably from the context of creationism and evolution arguments).
            Isn't there some mention in the book of Genesis of Adam attaining a great age and having many more children? So one would suppose a male son would have married a sister, as incest wasn’t considered sinful until the later time of Moses.
            Something like that anyway!

              Yes, me too heard all about that incest and marrying of sister and all.... The stories of the great book beats me.
              (If they only could stick to the story of that good man walking around in the middle east doing good...., one could have belived something. They just had to throw in all that other unbelivable stuff, didn't they...).
              Sorry to all true christians out there, but as I respect you, I expect the same in return.

            However, it's very interesting to see all those details of the cathedral. Nice playing with the depth of field too.

              hahahahaha..... great discussion. I tend to be agnostic when it comes to the bible (is that the right word?)....

              Thank you all for appreciating and comments above!

                I have seen Nidaros a few times now and the only part of the exterior that I go and study for a while are the gargoyles. I find their mythology quite interesting and also their features. However, that is about all I look at.
                So, apologies to those who consider the cathedral important for religious reasons. It is a marvelously constructed building.

              From Nidarosdomen to winter and darkness and soon Christmas in Trondheim:

                      The old and venerable BRITANNIA HOTEL will close in just a couple of days, and about 200 people will be without work.

                      The hotel will be closed for 18 months for total renovations.

                            I get a "coming back home"-feeling of the latest pictures. So much Trondheim feeling in them.
