Hvalfangerkirken. Fangst, tro og dristighet på Syd-Georgia / Svend Einar Hansen.

Title: Hvalfangerkirken. Fangst, tro og dristighet på Syd-Georgia / Svend Einar Hansen.
Translated title: The whalers' church. Whaling, faith and daring on South Georgia.
Author(s): Hansen, Svend Einar.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Oslo: Genesis
Language: Norwegian.
Abstract: Only church in Antarctic was built in 1913 on Capt. C.A. Larsen's initiative. He pioneered Norwegian whaling in South Georgia, at Grytviken, in 1904. Church was supported privately. It has been restored, and was re-consecrated in 1999. C. 100 Norwegians visited church and its graves in 1999. Accounts are given of near disastrous shipwreck, effect of WW1, some of clergy who served there, including popular 23 year old Fredrik Knudsen and Sverre Eika, and post-WW2 deacons. Last whaler was buried in 1959. BAS members sheltered in church during Argentine invasion of 1982. Conflict was turning point for Falklands, and so for South Georgia. Tim Carr, curator of Stanley Museum, led major repairs to church.
