Description
According to tradition the cathedral was built in the year 1125, after Sigurd Jorsalfarer named Stavanger as a cathedral city. Bishop Reinald of Winchester was responsible for its construction. The church was built in Anglo-Norman style, probably by English craftsmen. The church' patron saint is St. Svithun, and it is reputed that his arm was one of the church' original relics. In 1272 the cathedral was damaged by fire, after which it received a new chancel built in the Gothic style. Stavanger Cathedral is the only Norwegian cathedral from the Middle Ages that has retained its original appearance and been in constant use.
Stavanger Domkirke ble i følge tradisjonen bygget i 1125 da Sigurd Jorsalfarer gjorde Stavanger til bispesete. Biskop Reinald fra Winchester var ansvarlig for byggingen. Kirken ble bygget i anglonormannisk stil, trolig av engelske håndverkere. Kirkens skytshelgen er St. Svithun, og hans arm skal ha vært en av kirkens orginale relikvier. I 1272 ble katedralen rammet av brann og deretter fikk den et nytt kor bygget i gotisk stil. Stavanger Domkirke er den eneste norske katedral fra middelalderen som har beholdt sitt opprinnelige utseende og vært i kontinuerlig bruk.
