Yahoo Map of Antvorskov Monastery

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Antvorskov was the principal monastery for the order of Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God, located in the current town of Slagelse on Zealand, Denmark.

It was founded in 1165 by Valdemar the Great. Hans Tausen, who is credited as being a leading catalyst for the Danish Reformation, lived at the monastery and gave a sermon in 1525 that launched the reformation.

After the reformation, the buildings became a residence. In the 1700s, the buildings were sold and fell into disrepair.

In his autobiography, Hans Christian Andersen makes mention of excursions to the ruins of the monastery.
