Swedish Country Churches

This project focuses on the smallest and most unknown of all the churches of Sweden, and specifically those in two regions, Västergötland and Värmland, with the aim of spotlighting their beauty and originality. One fascinating thing they have in common is that they have hand-painted interiors, dating from different periods of history.


The project is directed by Philippe Bouquet, former professor of Scandinavian languages at the University of Caen, France.

The project concluded with the production of a book, thanks to financial support from the Swedish Royal Patriotic Society (Kungliga Patriotiska Sällskapet).
