Nidaros is the medieval name for the Norwegian city of Trondheim, and its cathedral still goes under that name.  The first building on the site was started in 1070, but the cathedral as it is today (see picture below) was not finished till around 1300.  In the intervening centuries the cathedral also suffered a succession of devastating fires, one started by a lightning strike.  The rebuilding and restoration of the cathedral was started in 1869 and officially finished in 2001.  

None of the medieval stained glass had survived the fires, and it was replaced between 1908 and 1934.

See below the extract from the book’s introduction.

As far as we can establish, the book, at any rate in its English translation, is now out of print.
