A church grim is a kind of guardian spirit that keeps watch over a church. It functions as the caretaker of its particular church, keeping order over anyone inside it, as well the souls in the churchyard.
The grim throws out anyone creating a disturbance during the service and chastises unruly children playing in the chancel. At night he scares away grave robbers and body snatchers, and people with their eyes on the church valuables. He also keeps a lookout for gasts (vengeful ghosts), and all kinds of mischievous nature spirits.
The illustration is from the book Vaesen.
