Beneath the arches of the old churches of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Estonia, on the symbolic arches of the heavens of the North, unique pre-Christian magical signs, specific three or four–horned devils and fool-motifs can be encountered, differing essentially from the related images elsewhere in Europe. Why are they there? A church is a house of God, a symbol of the Universe. Nothing accidental or superfluous can in principle occur in a house of God.
