Church of the Epiphany
I bet a lot of people who live in Stockholm haven't even heard of this church. I got here by taking a train, and then another train, and then walking for about ten minutes on small roads through a countryside residential area. Seriously? Who would build such a big and lavishly ornamented church in the middle of nowhere?
Knut Agathon Wallenberg would. The Wallenbergs are a wealthy family in Sweden, going back to the eighteenth century. Knut Agathon was among other things the Swedish Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the church, which he financed, was inaugurated on his 60th birthday in 1913. Ferdinand Boberg designed it.
