Medieval Art in Sweden Website

Medieval Art in Sweden is a new website compiled by friend and colleague Dr Alex Fried.  The site will provide information about Swedish medieval art, relevant research projects, conferences, exhibition reviews and new literature.  The most recent post discusses the fourteenth and fifteenth century wall paintings at Linde Church on Gotland.

There are also a number of additional images on her Flickr site.
