Co-Author and FRH Council member Marc de Beyer said: “Dutch church interiors are unknown to many of us. However, their richness is overwhelming. This book is a journey through 1000 years of history, a journey through magnificent Calvinist and Catholic churches and Jewish synagogues”.

This book was written in collaboration with  the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, the Dutch Churches and with other heritage institutions.

On 20 June the first copy was presented to the Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Mrs Jett Bussemaker, and to the Dutch Churches representives.

52 authors contributed to the book. All pictures were taken by Arjan Bronkhorst.

This unique book reflects the greatness of  this beautiful and unknown Heritage.
