Research Trip to the Netherlands

In March 2014 Claudia Jung made her first study trip to the Netherlands, aiming to visit some rare extant Jerusalem monuments and collect primary and secondary material for her PhD research on visual translations of Jerusalem in the Low Countries.

Among the visited sites was the 'Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk', also known as the 'Grote Kerk', in the town of Breda. This church in the Brabantine Gothic style was built between the fifteenth and the sixteenth centuries, while the town was ruled by the Counts of Nassau. Inside its magnificent interior can be found the Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre, completed in 1547.
