Het Kerken Boek Het Kerken Boek

by van Lier, Sakia,

It is not just church buildings that receive attention in this book, its members who frequented them throughout the ages do too. About 350 illustrations and as many captions detail numerous aspects of religious life in and around the churches, from medieval times to recent history. The book includes sections on architecture, worship, pretentious display by the nobility and the role of the church in Dutch society, both Roman Catholic and Protestant, and the plight of buildings no longer needed in a secularized nation. The book is a must for anyone interested in social and church history. The most beautiful and noteworthy Romanesque, Romanesque-gothic and baroque-style church buildings are included in this book. Plenty of information to embellish your family history.

Hardcover, 384 pages, 350 illustrations, bibliography, a short dictionary with explanations in laymen's language, Dutch language, special import
