Long Description:
Den romanske granit døbefont i Helligåndskirken stammer fra byens første kirke Skt.Nikolaj.
Ved kirkens restaurering i 1858 blev den fjernet fra kirken og blev brugt som vandingstrug for hestene ved byens fattiggård.
Den blev erstattet af en ny døbefont af marmor, udført af H.C.Freund, elev af Bertel Thorvaldsen.
I 1911 kom døbefonten tilbage til kirken, og blev igen brugt som døbefont. Dåbsfadet som havde hængt i private hjem i over 100 år kom også tilbage til kirken.
Døbefonten af marmor bliver nu brugt til stearinlys.

The Romanesque granite baptism font in the Holy Spirit Church originates from the city's first church, St. Nicholas.
When the church was restored in 1858, it was removed from the church and used as a watering trough for the horses at a farm.
It was replaced by a new marble baptism font made by H.C.Freund, a pupil of Bertel Thorvaldsen.
In 1911 the granite baptism font returned to the church and was again used as a baptism font. The baptism dish that had been hanging in private homes for over 100 years also returned to the church.
The baptism font of marble is now used for candles.
Approximate Age of Artefact: 1 Granite ca 1250. 2. marple 1858
