    Probably the Holy Spirit talked to them about your art works...

    Hell is actually reasonably sized city, with a train station along the main rail route from Trondheim into Sweden, went through it a few years ago. Seemed nice enough, though I didn't get a chance to explore.

    Fun fact: I'm still learning Norwegian and the flashcard app I was using came up with the Norwegian word for hell, which is "helvete". I already knew it because Black Metal.

    EDIT: I stand corrected. Hell itself is actually quite small, about 1,500 people in just over a square km. The surrounding kommune appears to have happily run with it though, as I remember a mid-sized skyscraper happily advertising "HELL" across the top.

    Futher edit: I'm guessing that I saw the Hell Kjopesenter, which is in a nearby town called Sandfaerhus.

    So the Norwegian for "Hell" is somewhat similar to what I thought the Swiss name for Switzerland was (based on my childhood "stamp-collecting", i.e. processing of one of those bags of stamps they used to sell for children). Though it seems that Helvetia (Helvetica) is somehow the female personification of Switzerland, and not quite its name.

    Of course, like some pairs of similar words or names in English, the similarity might never really be noticeable by Norwegians.

    I hear that Cardinal George Pell has been found guilty?

    The Australian media is not allowed to report on it.

    You guys don't have freedom of press?

    Anyway, prime example of something being too big and ended up causing way too much trouble.

    There is a gag order of the highest level in effect to maintain impartiality for those involved in the trial.

    Well, once he's been found guilty the gag order should be lifted, right?
