Chapter Summary

"The Churches dedicated to St. Clement in Norway" (Crawford 2004) was part of a wider study of the cult of St. Clement in Scandinavia and the British Isles. Most of the Clement churches in Norway have disappeared without leaving a trace, a fact which compelled Barbara to treat them only very brie y in her survey. In the written sources St. Clement's Church in Oslo is mentioned for the first time in 1264. The last time we hear about the church is in 1488, but the parish of St. Clement is referred to as late as in 1527. The churches are about the same size, and were probably built about the same time. The work probably started with the erection of the chancels of St. Mary's and St. Clement's where lime ashlar and some gneiss were used as building materials.
