Mondays in Iceland - #90

Special Friday Edition

Cathedral



This is the "high" church in Reykjavík, the seat of the Bishop of Iceland. Danish in design and decoration. It sits in the center of town next to Iceland's parliament, the Alþingi. Since 1845 each session of parliament has begun with a Mass at the cathedral, and from there the dean of the cathedral leads the members of parliament to the parliament house.

Not to be confused with Fríkirkjan, the “free” church that is independent of the State.

Draw your own conclusions.

By Professor Batty
