The Nordic St. Olav Conference 2016
NPS, Nidaros Restaureringsarbeider (NDR) og Nidaros Pilegrimsgård inviterer til en nordisk konferanse om Olavsarven.
the National Pilgrim Center of Norway, The Restoration Workshop of the Nidaros Cathedral and Nidaros Pilgrim Center are now inviting for a conference on the legacy of St. Olav. This is a hidden common heritage, but nevertheless an interesting rediscovery of a route and a cultural heritage that includes all of Northern Europe. We have invited an interesting group of academics to present their work during the conference.
The aim of the conference is to generate interest for the legacy of St. Olav, to expand the pilgrim route and this kind of cultural and spiritual tourism, into relevant countries - and to build a scientific network for further research and cooperation on this tangible and intangible heritage that belongs to us all.
The program comitée has had the follwing members:
Steinar Bjerkestrand, managing director at The Restoration Workshop of The Nidaros Cathedral
Berit Lånke, Senior Advisor at The National Pilgrim Centre in Norway
Cathrine Roncale, Manager at Nidaros Pilgrim Centre
