    See the hidden roman paintings!!

    by El_Sueco Updated Sep 12, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Under the roof of the Kaga Church, hidden above the present vaults, there is some very old roman paintings, dated from the 12-13th centuries.
    This painting shows the Abbot and the Prior Nun (the first nun to remplace the Abedissa in the monastery).
    Make contact to the church administration to get the key to get in.
    To see the paintings you have to get up on some very steep ladders and walk under the church roof on planks.

    Kakukilla, a women attacked by rats!

    by El_Sueco Updated Feb 24, 2004

    Over the pulpit in the Kaga church there is a painting of a seldom seen popular Saint, Kakukilla - a woman that is attacked by rats.
    The name is a confusion of the Saint names Columquilla and Columba of Sens, the power over rats comes from a mix of S. Gertrud of Nivelles and those saints.
    Painting from 15th century.
    In those days rats and mice were a torment to people. To get protection against them you did call for the Saint Kakukilla. She is painted in some Swedish churches, diligently spinning and mostly sorrounded by rats or with a mouse running on the thread.

    The altar, with glass window and a cross.
    The Kaga church is covered with vault paintings.
    The church is small, it is beautiful and it is old.
    The glass paintings was made in Stockholm by Neumann and Vogel.
