Porsgrunn west side


At the west side church in Porsgrunn (dated to 1758 CE), it is possible to find the Divine Name two places. When you approach the altarpiece, you can clearly see the Hebrew letters YHWH at the topmost of the altarpiece.

But inside the sacristy (the priest's anteroom) it is written something even more exciting. There it is another altarpiece, with the writing "Jehova". The text can be difficult to spot at first sight.
