    Ole and his siblings were all baptized into the state Norwegian religion in this church, or cathedral. Most of the marriages were probably conducted there, also. Bergen Cathedral (Norwegian: Bergen Domkirke) is the seat of the Diocese of Bjørgvin. Located in the city center of Bergen, Norway, the first recorded reference to it is dated 1181.
    During the reign of king Haakon IV of Norway, a Franciscan friary was established near the church, then known as Olavskirken, or the church of Saint Olaf, which was incorporated in it. The church burned down in 1248 and again in 1270, but was reconstructed after both fires. In 1463, it burned down again, but this time it was not reconstructed until the 1550s, despite being declared a cathedral in 1537.

    After the fires of 1623 and 1640, Bergen Cathedral received its current general appearance. The steeple on the nave was torn down, and the current tower was built. During the renovation in the 1880s by architect Christian Christie, the Rococo interior was replaced to give the interiors back their former medieval appearance. A cannonball from the 1665 Battle of Vågen between the English and Dutch fleets remains embedded in the cathedral's exterior wall.
