Gothenburg stave church

The stave church of Gothenburg (Swedish: BrÀdekyrkan i Göteborg), was Gothenburg's first church building and one of its first buildings constructed since its city plan was drawn up. Completed in 1621 on one of the city's first five blocks, bounded by the streets Kungsgatan, VÀstra Hamngatan, Kyrkogatan and Korsgatan, the stave church stood on the same plot now occupied by Gothenburg Cathedral. The church was intended from the outset to be temporary.

From July 26, 1619, the pastor and state-appointed superintendent of Gothenburg was Sylvester Johannis Phrygius (d. 1628), formerly the pastor and superintendent of Skövde.
