WIKIPEDIA (no)

Dag Eilivsson var en norsk høvding på Bratsberg mot slutten av vikingtida. Sammen med sine menn fra Grenland, var Dag med kong Magnus Berrføtt på hærtoget til Vesterøyene i 1102–1103. Da kongen ble drept, var Dag blant de siste som forlot ham. Det blir også antatt at Dag var med Sigurd Jorsalfare på Jorsalferden i 1108-1111.[1]

Når Dag kom tilbake til Bratsberg etter ferdene, lot han bygge kryptkirken på Kapitelberget. Han grunnla også Gimsøy kloster, hvor hans datter Baugeid var den første abbedissen. Sønnen til Dag, Gregorius Dagsson, ble senere en av Norges mektigste lendmenn.

Dag or Day Eilivsson was a Norwegian chieftain of Bratsberg the end of the Viking Age. Sammen med sine menn fra Grenland , var Dag med kong Magnus Berrføtt på hærtoget til Vesterøyene i 1102 – 1103 . Together with his men from Grenland, was the day King Magnus Barefoot on hærtoget to the Western Islands in 1102 - 1103. Da kongen ble drept, var Dag blant de siste som forlot ham. When the king was killed, was the day among the last to leave him. Det blir også antatt at Dag var med Sigurd Jorsalfare på Jorsalferden i 1108 - 1111 . [1] It is also assumed that the day was with Sigurd Jorsalfare on Jorsalferden in 1108 - 1111.

Når Dag kom tilbake til Bratsberg etter ferdene, lot han bygge kryptkirken på Kapitelberget . When the day came back to Bratsberg for flights, let him build the church crypt on Kapitelberget. Han grunnla også Gimsøy kloster , hvor hans datter Baugeid var den første abbedissen . He also founded Gimsøy monastery, where his daughter Baugeid was the first abbess. Sønnen til Dag, Gregorius Dagsson , ble senere en av Norges mektigste lendmenn . Son of Day, Gregory Dagsson, later became one of Norway's most powerful lendermen.

Gimsøy Abbey was a Benedictine nunnery located on the island of Gimsøy in Skien, Telemark, Norway.

It was founded by Dag Eilivsson, probably in the second quarter of the 12th century, and his daughter Baugeid was the first abbess. The abbey was well positioned on the navigable river on the way to Skien, and was comfortably endowed with estates.

By about 1500, however, the premises had been mortgaged, although the nuns continued to live there, and were permitted to stay in residence after the dissolution of the nunnery during the Reformation. The buildings burnt to the ground in 1546, and the site was cleared, leaving no visible traces.

Skien is the one of the oldest towns in Norway. Nowadays Skien is a municipality in Telemark Fylke (County).

One of the great men who lived at this place around year 1100 A.D. was Dag Eilivsson.

Dag Eilivsson was a Norse who converted to the Christian religion. He built a church on Kapitelberget, and he provided the economic base for a Benedictine monastery at Gimsøy, also situated in Skien. Kapitelberget belonged to the large farm Bratsberg. The church was a private chapel for the farm and was dedicated to St. Michael.

The church was crypt-church, a rare thing in Norway. The crypt under the church-floor was used for requiems and to keep relics. Researchers assume that Dag has travelled to The Holy Land with Sigurd Jordsalfar, and brought a relic back to Skien and Kapitelberget.

The chapel is located on a knoll with views in all directions and was deliberately placed in a slope to fit to the crypt under the choir. Crypt is interpreted as a tomb for lineage in Bratsberg.

It is uncertain when the church at Kapitelberget went out of use, but in 1576 a document refers as a ruin. After the church went out of use, it was eventually hidden under gravel and soil.

The ruin was re-discovered in 1783, but it was first excavated in 1901. In 1928, restoration and conservation began. The work was completed in 1933.
