Reformationen i Roskilde

Hanne Birgitte Hellisen, Susanne Stilling Frederiksen & Mathias Svane Kraft

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Our project deals with the Reformation in the city of Roskilde, Denmark. Our purpose is to clarify how the Reformation took place locally. We examine how the Reformation took place in the city, and how the new religion affected both the clergy and the cathedral and Reformation gradually transformed the urban landscape. We are influenced by “the spatial turn” in the humanities through the reading of Alexandra Wal-sham and Martin Wangsgaard Jürgensen, who are both aiming to understand how new religious practice changes the physical spaces. We mostly base our research on the great work of the Danish National Museum, which has done tremendous research on most Danish churches in the series Danmarks Kirker. In addition, we have used different sources and interpretations of sources relating to the history of Roskilde.
