The Danish Television each year transmits the Christmas service from a church some where in Denmark.

In 2004 it is from Thorsager Rundkirke (round church) a church from the 1200 which is the only of it's kind in Jutland.

Thorsager Round Church is one of the 7 medieval Round Churches in Denmark
It belongs to a group of 3 churches called Absalon Round Churches, built by Bishop Absalon and his family. It is built around 4 pillars while the 4 round churches on the island Bornholm only have 1 central pillar.

The church built in the beginning of 1200 is situated in the centre of Djursland but in medieval time Thorsager was a village at the shore of a fiord which divided Djursland in a north and south part.
Saxo the famous Danish historian talks about viking sea battles at Thorsager.

It is believed that the church, built with it's thick walls on a hill at the village was a "Sanctuary" for people in the area and for the Danish king to hide his treasures.

The panorama was made last weekend and is also my submition to the last World Wide Panorama event this year.

The event was held for the 4 th time and the theme this time was "Sanctuary". The panoramas will be available to the public in a couple of weeks but if you have not seen the last 3 events please visit the WWP site.

Each of the 3 events has from 110 to 186 participants and most of the panoramas are available both as fullscreen and a smaller size.
