Danish church honours a prominent historical citizen.

by The REJIGIT Blog

Sitting atop a small hill known as Bispebjerg Bakke in the Bispebjerg district on the outskirts of Copenhagen is a Evangelical Lutheran church of cathedral like proportions. In 1940, after more than 20 years of building, this striking piece of architecture was consecrated as a memorial to the Danish priest and philosopher N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783-1872). 

At the outset, Danish architect,Peder Vilh elm Jensen-Klint won a competition to design a memorial to Grundtvig and Grundtvig’s Church came about.
