My mom recently got an email that highlighted ten of the most unique churches in the world. She knows that I am very interested in Architecture and this write up was stellar. But it was a direct lift from the always fascinating Oddee.com. Why don’t people give credit to the writer or company that produces these things? It would be so easy to do and I think is the right thing to do.
My favorite church on the list reminds me of something you might see in a Lord of the Rings movie, with hobbits milling about outside the church:
The article states, “The Borgund Stave Church in Lærdal is the best preserved of Norway’s 28 extant stave churches. This wooden church, probably built in the end of the 12th century, has not changed structure or had a major reconstruction since the date it was built. The church is also featured as a Wonder for the Viking civilization in the video game Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings.”
I think my grandson Nicky would have recognized it from the Age of Empires video game. :o)
