Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz (1885-1975) was invited to design a church in the remote southern village of Klippan in 1962 at the age of 77.  For architectural pilgrims, the Church of St. Petri Klippan has since beomce a counterpoint to the influential Chapel of Notre Dame at Ronchamp (1955).  This volume documents Lewerentz's masterpiece.
