Åker

This is Saint Gabrel and he said to Saint Mary that she would bear a child. These are Elisabeth and Mary and they greet each other. Here Mary rests, as she bore the child, Creator of Heaven and Earth, who redeemed us. These are the Three Kings, who first made offerings to Our Lord. Here He accepted the Kings' offerings, Our Lord. Here the Three Kings rode away, after they had made offerings to Our Lord. <þæiy> that here forward ... Jews took Our Lord and [bou]nd [hi]m to a tree and protected him. Then they led him away bound from there, and here the Jews nailed Jesus to the cross. Look ahead to this. Ma[st]e[r] Sigreifr.

My friend Ogneslav visited Bornholm in the summer of 2019, and he sent me these photos. Thanks !
