The Church of Adolf Fredrik

There’s many churches in Stockholm we haven’t visit yet. I have promised you four chapters in my theme “The Stockholm Church Walk”. So lets take of on episode III and visit the four parishes in Vasastan and their churches. First out is the church named after the Swedish King Adolf Fredrik. On this HDR you can see the ceiling fresco in the cupola of the church. The fresco is painted by the Swedish artist Julius Kronberg and pictures scenes from the Bible. I will tell you more about this church in my next post.

The cupola of the Church of Hedvig Eleonora

Before we move on to the next church tomorrow let’s have the look at the cupola of the church. It’s not only gives the church a beautiful exterior look. It also brings very beautiful light into the church. The cupola is very sparse decorated on the inside only a golden sun in the middle. At the bottom of the cupola there is quotes from the bible in every four directions. Simple but very beautiful IMO! Tomorrow we another interesting church at Östermalm, the Church of Engelbrekt.

The pipe organ in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora

Today we look at some more beautiful inventories in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora. The present pipe organ is the 6th in the church’s history. It’s built by Grönlunds Orgelbyggeri, delivered 1976, and has 58 organ stops. However 20 of those organ stops are remains from three of the organ’s predecessors. The facade of the organ remains as it was originally built after Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz’s design in 1762. To the left you can see the baptismal chapel with the stained glass window called “Andreaskorst”, “The Andrew Cross”, made by Bengt Olof Kälde 1936.

The Altar in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora

Today we take a closer look at the altar in the Church of Hedvig Eleonora. The gilded altar is a gift from the ironmaster Johan Clason. It’s made by the master builder Georg Fröman after Göran Josuae Adelcrantz ’s design and was consecrated on All Saints’ Day 1747. The altarpiece ”Jesus korsfästelse”, ” The crucifixion of Jesus”, is painted by the artist Georg Engelhard Schröder.
