100 angels’ church / Iglesia de 100 ángeles / Èglise des 100 anges

In English:

Ilomatsi church.

During next four weeks I am presenting four totally different churches in my country. When saying different, I really mean it. I start the presentation with “100 angels’ church” or “Picture church” as it is known also. In this church there are painted more than 100 angels. Also there is painted the Creator of the World, although the Bible says that it is forbidden to make a picture of God.

Ilomantsi is a municipality in North Karelia and it can be reached from Helsinki by car in 6 hours. Its situation is quite near the Russian border. So the “Frontier spirit” is touchable there although it is Karelian style.

Pews of the church are for 800 persons and it was built in 1796 by Henrik Johan Mechelin. Also the altarpiece is by Henrik Johan Mechelin. Samuel Elmgren (1830–1832) painted those angels and stories with person from Bible. Enjoy viewing angels.

En español:

Iglesia de Ilomatsi

Durante próximas cuatro semanas que estoy presentando cuatro diferentes iglesias en mi país. Al decir diferentes, lo digo en serio. Inicio la presentación con “Iglesia de 100 ángeles” o “Iglesia de imagen” como se lo conocen también. En esta iglesia hay pintadas más de 100 ángeles. Asimismo, el Creador del Mundo, aunque la Biblia dice que está prohibido para hacer una imagen de Dios.

Ilomantsi es al noreste de Helsinki en coche unas 6 horas. Su situación es muy cerca de la frontera con Rusia. Así que “El espíritu de frontera” es palpable al estilo de Carelia.

Bancos están para 800 personas y la iglesia fue construida en 1796 por Henrik Johan Mechelin. También el retablo es por Henrik Johan Mechelin. Samuel Elmgren (1830-1832) pintó los ángeles y otras personas e historias de la Biblia. Disfrute viendo ángeles de esta iglesia.

En français:

Église de Ilomatsi

Pendent suivant quatre semaines, je vais vous présenter quatre églises différentes dans mon pays. En disant différentes, Je veux le dire vraiment. Je commence la présentation avec “Èglise des 100 anges” ou “L’èglise de l’image” comme elle est connue aussi. Dans cette église il ya peint plus de 100 anges. Aussi le créateur du monde, bien que la Bible dit qu’il est interdit de faire une image de Dieu.

Ilomantsi est de Helsinki vers le Nord-est et le trajet dure en voiture d’environ 6 heures. Sa situation est très près de la frontière russe. Alors l’esprit de «frontière» est palpable bien que soit c’est le style de Carélie.

Les bancs sont pour 800 personnes et elle a été construit en 1796 par Henrik Johan Mechelin. Aussi le retable est par Henrik Johan Mechelin. Samuel Elmgren (1830-1832) peint les anges et les autres personnes et les histoires de la Bible. Jouissez-Vous voyent les anges de cette èglise.

  1. My what a beautiful church that is! It would be very interesting to me to attend a service there. I would love to see it when filled with worshippers. The architecture of your country is very pleasing to see and the insides of the church are very beautiful too!

    • Hello Montucky.

      Thank You. Because this church is situated “far away” from my house, I have not been visited in it earlier until this year. This summer I was lucky to go inside. I had read that there are a lot of paintings and thus I was very interested to see them.

  2. What a fine presentation of this beautiful church, it is so different from our churches here in Denmark, I like the wood as building material, and together with the colorful painting and all the angels in the church it must make you feel pleasant, uplifted and welcome here.

      Thank You. I like wood also very much to be used as building material. It makes churches different from those stone churches. Anyway every church has some specialties.

  3. Good morning Matti,
    The church is beautiful. You know that I like churches and I am very happy about it, that I may look at these beautiful pictures. The color of the exterior including the architecture is very harmonious and friendly. Wooden churches are for me, something special. The beautiful colors of the interior including the paintings is impressive and give a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. All images are excellent for expression in the viewing angle, color and detail. I thank you for allowing me to watch this series and look forward to the next. In between, I always look back to your blog and enjoy the series of pictures. Thank you very much for all your nice comments. We wish you and Anja a nice weekend, all the best and health on your common everyday ways. We have the first snow in Cologne this year since Friday morning. There is not much, but it was all white and beautiful. Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

  7. What I really like is the details in the artwork, colors, and stained glass. The photo, Laupias Samarialainen, the painting is quite unusual for me as I haven’t seen anything like it. Also, I have seen some beautifully decorated churches in the U.S.A., but nothing like this “Picture Church” with its wonderful bell tower.

    Have a great weekend!

      Thank You Anna for Your nice comment. I guess that You solved in Your mind what is “Laupias Samarialainen”. Yes, it is Good Samaritan.

  8. Wow! Finnish church is so unique!
    Some English churches are very similar to yours.
    Especially Methodist, Baptist churches.
    Nothing very fanciful. Just a place for worship.

    6 hours of drive? That’s quite a long journey but it’s definitely worth it.

    • Hi London Caller.

      Thank You for Your visit here and leaving Your comment. Yes, six hours, that’s right, but not driving on highways, but local twisting roads. At same time I was photographing a very special exhibition of wooden art made by local artists. That I’ll publish next year and I can say in advance that those wooden figures are curious and at same time hilarious.

      Happy Sunday to London.

  9. Quelle belle visite dans cette ancienne église en bois de Carélie ! Evidemment ca me rappelle “un peu” les églises russes de l´autre côté de la frontière… mais le clocher de l´Eglise des cent Anges” est différent. J´aime beaucoup ce bois peint, les couleurs chaudes, les vitraux colorés et tous ces anges á l´air un peu latin😉 Ca change des anges souvent représentés avec des cheveux blonds et des yeux bleus. Très belle photos, une fois de plus, merci et bon dimanche🙂

    • Bonjour Isa.

      C’était très agréable à lire que tu connais la Carélie. Il ya “deux Carélies”, l’une sur le côté finlandais et l’autre sur la partie russe. Autrefois les gens ont été de même origine, je croix vraiment. Un excellent exemple est notre l’épopée nationale Finlandaise – Kalevala.

      http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalevala

      Je suis tellement contente que mon post t’as plu.

      Je te souhaite aussi un très bon dimanche.

  11. I really like the outside of the church and the varying roof heights. The shapes are simple, but there is decoration on the bell tower and the wood and colour make it an impressive building. These old buildings are very special. Thank you for your series of photos and for taking us inside to see all the paintings.

    Comment by jackiequeen — December 1, 2010 @ 14:50 | Reply

    • Hi Jackiequeen.

      Thank You for Your visit and for Your kind words.

      The church seems to be so called “Cross church” and with it I mean its form. The contrast to it is a rectangular church. Rectangular form is the most basic, easy to build and most cheap of course. Some churches in this form are looking like “cow house” when seen from outside. Inside look is then another thing and then one can have surprises. Maybe someday next year I’ll present a church in rectangular form, but a beautiful one.

      This church roof is really special here in Finland, as I have noticed on my many trips. It is not so common that the roof is cut from each side at the top.

      Have a wonderful day!

      What a surprise!!! I am amazed that You visit my “unknown” country. The beginning of this summer has been rainy and cold, but sometimes sunny. We just came from our countryside cottage which is near to the small town call Varkaus. Varkaus and Savonlinna are quite near to each others, the distance is only about 80 kilometers / 50 miles. I’ll write to You a mail.

      Happy stay in Finland and remember to make posts in Your blog.

  19. Dear Matti,
    For over 40 years I only knew some of your country from my fascination with the Kantele. For me, the sound was unique and the old styles of music were very seductive. I read a few books and rarely saw TV programs. Now that we have been to Helsinki twice and have seen your remarkable photos, my admiration for Finland has grown enormously. I felt awed by the Old Church in Helsinki. It is so clean, beautiful and inspiring. Lots of our English churches are dusty and gloomy (but not all). Your photos of Finnish churches have made my soul smile in wonder. One of the many CD’s I bought in Helsinki is “Kanteleeni”, Spiritual Melodies from Finland; played on Kantele. I can imagine some of them being sung in the Church of 100 Angels. Again, I am awed! I sent some of my photos of the Old Church to my friend in Scotland. He is a Scottish Church Elder. He said, “What a wonderful place of worship it must be” Yes, indeed! Thank you for this amazing set of pictures.

    • Hello Clive and Adi.

      Thank You for Your message. I did not know that You have been to Helsinki twice. That warms my heart. What comes to Kantele, You are right that this 100 Angels’ church might be the right place to listen to Kantele or the song Kanteleeni. The church is quite near to the Russian border on the area called Karelia, but it does not mean that the culture at the other side would be very different. “Old Karelia”, my own term, has had its own culture and to that belongs Kantele. If You read what Wikipedia says about the famous Finnish man called

      Elias Lönnrot

      then You understand better.

      I checked the link which You gave here and I find Your community very active and warm hearted.

      I wish to You both a very happy and sunny summer.

  21. I like to visit churches and take its pictures. Since it’s a place of worship, architecture pay more attention and focus on the beauty to details. I’m liking your blog already, because you do write a bit of history in your pictures. I like to know where everything comes from that’s why I also include a little of its history🙂

  22. hello there – wonderful photos – I have been to Helsinki and also spent 2 weeks in February up in Pukaharui – all the shops were shut and we had to take skis to go to the nearest shopping opportunity a gas station, I got very tired of smoked fish and dried soups during that time I can tell you. but I did enjoy the landscapes the snow on snow on snow of the trees and wide expanses of frozen lake – oh and I went to a russian restaurant in Helsinki and had the most wonderful honey vodka so many good memories!

      Wow. I meet very seldom people in my blog who have been visited in Finland. It was very nice to read that You loved winter and snow. Many are “afraid” of cold. I just wonder why You selected Punkaharju. Of course I know the Place. If You someday come again to Finland, then visit in these awesome places:

      World’s Biggest Snow Castle.

Also taking the train out of Helsinki into the middle of nowhere was wonderful! thanks for the tips I will check them out Poli

      Very nice m. I appreciate it very much because in Your country there are so many wonderful churches. Of course, these wooden churches differ from those in Your country. This church is situated in a small place nearly in the middle of “nowhere” in the same small town where there was held the Bear Carving Contest.

      Have a nice day!
