Belgium

The church of Our Lady Geboortekerk dates from the 10th century and is the oldest church in the Benelux.


The first church was founded in the beginning of the 8th century, and consisted of a so-called Free Church eenbeukige not so much for it. Around 900 was most likely a stronger sustainable sandstone church built of iron.

The first increase comes from the 14th century and was paid by the abbey of Averbode. In the 17th century the church for half and last time increased. Major repairs were made in 1727 and in 1836 was all under one roof.

The church was destroyed by fire on May 11, 1940 and was rebuilt in 1956. The lower part of the church is still in the sandstone of the years 900.

More About Belgium

Belgium is a country in northwest Europe. Founding member of the European Union, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres and has a population of about 10.7 million. From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, it was a prosperous centre of commerce and culture. Upon its independence, Belgium eagerly participated in the Industrial Revolution and, at the end of the nineteenth century, possessed several colonies in Africa. Today, Belgium's strongly globalized economy and its transportation infrastructure are integrated with the rest of Europe. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helps made it 2007 the world's 15th largest trading nation. Cultural life is nowadays concentrated within each language community and a variety of barriers have made a shared cultural sphere less pronounced. Anyway, the region corresponding to today's Belgium has seen the flourishing of major artistic movements that have had tremendous influence on European art and culture. Text extracted from wikipedia.
