St. Henry’s church / Iglesia de Enrique de Uppsala / Èglise de Henri d’Uppsala

In English:

St. Henry’s (Bishop of Finland) church in Pyhtää.

This is the second church in my series: “Four totally different churches in Finland”.

St. Henry’s bishop of Finland lived 1151–1158.

This church was built in 1460 and thus it is a medieval church. From Helsinki by car it takes one hour and half to reach it. We have a lot of medieval stone churches and this is “the last one” towards to the East.

Pulpit is dating from 1653.

En español:

Iglesia de Enrique de Uppsala en Pyhtää.

Esta es la segunda iglesia en mi serie: Cuatro iglesias totalmente diferentes en Finlandia.

Enrique de Uppsala vivió 1151–1158.

Esta iglesia fue construida en 1460 y consecuentemente se trata de una iglesia medieval. Desde Helsinki en carro se tarda una hora y media para llegar hacia allá. Tenemos un montón de iglesias medievales de piedra y esta es “la última” hacia el Este.

El púlpito es del año 1653.

En français:

Èglise de Henri d’Uppsala à Pyhtää.

Il s’agit de la deuxième église dans ma série: “Quatre églises totalement différentes en Finlande”.

Henri d’Uppsala vécu 1151–1158.

Cette église a été construite en 1460 et aini elle est donc d’une église médiévale. De Helsinki en voiture, il prend une heure et demie pour y arriver. Nous avons beaucoup d’églises médiévales en pierre et il s’agit de “la dernière” vers l’Est.

La chaire est de 1653.

  1. This is a wonderful series! Such beauty and history in the church and so much art and its symbolim! I would love to sit there and just contemplate the history of the place and the country. Here in American we do not have the same sense of history in churches or buildings or institutions. I can find history here going back that far only in the art and culture of the native American Indians.

    • Hi Montucky.

      Thank You so much for Your comment. It is true that we have still left some churches with full of history. Mainly these stone churches can be found on our costal line and the majority of them are situated on the most South Western coast. This church is an exception with its situation, because it is to East from Helsinki. Also there is one notable “”peculiarity” that many of them are situated on areas in which the majority of people spoke Swedish, our second national language. Times are changing and nowadays Finnish is coming more popular in these areas.

      In photos number 33 and 47, to find the right number just move mouse pointer above photos, there is a most huge picture painted on or churches’ wall. Its height is 7 meters / 23 feet.

      I wish to You a very wonderful day.

  3. The colors of the flowers on the grounds are simply beautiful! I also love the shot of the pulpit (pyhtaa_church_finland-7.jpg). The detail on the pulpit is wonderful. Your camera has a powerful lens.

  4. A very simple outer shell, contains so much ornamentation. The carving in photo 26 – do you know who it is meant to be? It looks as if he has horns, has it meant to be the devil?. I really love the ochre coloured paintings that look almost as if a child has drawn them, like 29 and the ship in 42 and the ceiling in 46. I read that they were whitewashed over in the reformation and have been uncovered and wondered if that was why they were so pale.But, for me, that is the beauty of them. Thank you for this visit to another very interesting building.

    • Hi Jackie.

      Thank You. I tried to solve the problem of photo 26 from a book about “all of our middle age stone churches” which has 644 pages, but no success. So I have to guess now. Maybe he is some “holy person” with a different hair fashion. When comparing photos from those devils I have seen in churches, this differs so much from them, so no devil is my guess. One peculiarity exists and it concerns photos from 12 to 16. Artist took models to these Apostles by painting local village people. Nice idea!🙂 This was told to me by the guide who actually was the vicar of this church.

      Happy weekend.

  5. Hello Matti,
    Une église d’aspect très simple, qui renferme de belles richesses, avec une grande diversité de fresques et statues, d’époques différentes. Très beau, encore.
    Bon week-end.

  6. Wow, I love it. I love that it is so simple on the outside, but so beautiful on the inside. Are the drawings the original artwork for the church? I find it mind boggling to even think about a church being that old and so well preserved.

    Here in the US after the 2nd Vatican Council many Catholic Churches were gutted and the beautiful stonework, artwork and statues replaced by white walls and modern art, and modern altars. Did anything like that happen in your country or have the old churches mostly been perserved so beautifully? The church I grew up in was thankfully spared that fate because it was a newer church and the children of the Italian immigrants who cut the stones in the local quary for it and built it with sweat and hard work, where still alive and they would have literally gone up in arms to defend the church if some pastor had decided to remodel it!(Of course, here in Michigan “old” is anything that dates back to the 1800’s.)

    • Hi Kateri.

      Thank You commenting.

      Well, sometimes we have had to paint the walls of churches under chalk paint when in fear of “enemies”, that they could not find these treasures. Sometimes also church’s bells were drowned into nearby lakes when in fear of enemies. Sometimes altarpieces and such things were hided somewhere. In Nurmijärvi where I live some painting were used as steps but turned inside out. Now they are visible and these can be seen in my blog concerning the wooden church of Nurmijärvi. The guide in this church told this to me. I guess that many other systems have been made that I even do not know.

      Happy weekend.

  7. A great series and so interesting views and amazing the historical age. I find the drawings/etchings on the walls and ceiling intriguing as well as the depictions of the saints and the ships.

  8. Another great series – this is a beautiful church – it looks more like our Danish churches – built of stone and frescoes from the Middle Ages. Our church here in Mårslet is from the around 1100 (http://maarslet-kirke.dk/?page_id=554) and the great cathedral in Aarhus (http://www.aarhus-domkirke.dk/Billeder-32.aspx) is also nearly 1000 years old.

    • Hi Truels.

      Thank You so much Truels for Your comment and link. Our history is very young. When people in Denmark and Sweden were already cultivated, then we just “descended down from a tree”🙂. Okay, this is old church in my country in our history and next time there will be a “domkirke” also in my blog. I am curious to know how You’ll like it.

      I wish to Yopu also a very wonderful weekend in merry Denmark!

  10. Good evening Matti,
    I saw several churches in your series. Each has its own way very beautiful. The exterior of this church is simple and hides the beautiful interior. The sculptures including the paintings on the walls and ceilings are very impressive and work well preserved. This church exudes calm and peace, and is welcoming to a prayer. The cemetery provides a neat appearance. I thank you for allowing me to watch this series and look forward to the next series. The pictures are all very beautiful in color and detail. Thank you for all your nice comments. We wish you and Anja, have a nice weekend, good luck and health to your common everyday ways.
    Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

  11. The roof is extremely steep!!
    Is that typical in Finland?
    Is it because of the snow?
    It’s actually more dangerous to construct such roof.

    I recognise the ship in the church.
    There’s one finnish Church in London too.
    They also have similar ship in that church.
    It’s for the seamen, right?

    Comment by London Caller — December 6, 2010 @ 17:00 | Reply

    • Hi London Caller.

      Steep roofs – Older church had steep roofs, but not those more new ones. Steep in due to snow, You are right.

      About ships in churches. Those ships or church ships are called Votive ships. The word Votive is coming from Latin word “Votum” and it means: “promised gift, promise, and wish”.

      They have been donated by some congregants who have been saved from some distress at sea or thankfulness from some successful sea voyage. Originally they are memories to some person who has been drowned. People are gathered by the side of these ships to remember those who have been drowned and to pray for them.

      Ships are old Christian symbols: Church is a ship, which leads us safely at world’s rough seas. As an example is used Noah’s ark. These ships are hanging from ceiling and their prow is pointing direct to the shrine. Also they are extremely meticulous work of art from the original models.

      I hope that my answer helps You to know their purpose.

      • Thank you so much for your detail explanation.🙂

        Over here, people in Britain use “fish” as a symbol of Christianity.
        I think it has something to do with Jesus’ close friends, who happened to be fishermen.
        I used to go to Christian kindergarten, but I kinda forgot some of the biblical stories already.

Que de merveilles si bien préservés et restaurées : les fresques des murs et des voûtes, les sculptures en bois, le toit couvert de bois, les briques rouges et ces tableaux des apôtres aux yeux profonds ! Merci pour ce beau voyage dans les églises finlandaises, tes photos sont superbes.

    • Hi Elizabeth.

      Thank You for Your visit here and leaving the praising comment. Churches are interesting targets to photograph them. When I visit in churches, I never know what to find inside them. Many times there are positive surprises to be found. I love beautiful things and in many cases history there.

      Have a wonderful day.
