St. Paul's Church, Copenhagen

4.3
St. Paul's Church (Danish: Sankt Pauls Kirke) is a Lutheran church in central Copenhagen, Denmark, also colloquially known as Nyboder's Church due to its location in the middle of the Nyboder area. It was designed by Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann and constructed from 1872 to 1877.HistoryThe church is part of a wave of church constructions which took place in Copenhagen in the 1870s to provide capacity for the city's growing population. Unlike the other new churches—St. Stephen's and St. James' in Østerbro and St. Mathew's in Vesterbro—St. Paul's was not built in one of the emerging districts outside the city's old fortifications which had just been decommissiom Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann was charged with the design of the new church, his first independent work as an architect, and it opened on 15 February 1877.ArchitectureThe church is built in red brick and the masonry is decorated with blinds, arches, columns and pinnacles on all corners.InteriorThe church's first altarpiece was a painting by Hendrick Krock entitled The Eucharist (Danish: Nadveren). In 1887 it was replaced by a gilded crucifix created by the sculptor Jens Adolf Jerichau, a donation from pastor Christian Møller.
