The Psalmodikon is a one string instrument that comes to us from Scandanavia. In the early 19th century violins were not allowed in Scandinavian churches because they were used to accompany dancing. Most rural churches couldn't afford a piano or an organ. So this simple instrument, along with a numbered notation system called Sifferskrift, became a popular way to teach hymns to the congregation.
