The Lectern - Talerstolen - at Skamlingsbanken, Denmark Featured Print

The Lectern - Talerstolen - at Skamlingsbanken, Denmark

The Lectern (Talerstolen) at Skamlingsbanken, a large hill located in Vejstrup Parish, Jutland, Denmark, between Kolding and Christiansfeld. Erected in 1903 and designed by Lorenz Frolich and made by Niels Larsen Stevns, the monument tells (with national, Christian and Nordic symbols) the struggle for the mother tongue. Several major historic public meetings took place here during and after the disputes over the territory of Schleswig-Holstein. When peace returned, there was an exchange of territories between the kingdom and the Duchy of Southern Jutland. As a result, eight non-Jutland parishes in the northern part of Tyrstrup Herred, including Vejstrup Parish, were transferred to the kingdom and Skamlingsbanken thereafter fell within the borders of Denmark.
circa 1910s
