Zuid-Holland, two churches



















Following the page about Voorschoten published two weeks ago are two new pages about the most important churches of that village, the reformed Dorpskerk (left picture) and the catholic St. Laurentius (right). Both are from the 1860's and are in early neo-Gothic style, and the latter is the first complete church by architect Th. Asseler.

Zuid-Holland new page

There's a new page in the Zuid-Holland section about the village of Voorschoten.

En dat er een nieuwe pagina is over Voorschoten vertel ik hier uiteraard ook even in het Nederlands.

Geldrop once more, and more


Following the previous update about Geldrop-Mierlo, almost a month ago already,  I decided the old page about the St. Brigida in Geldrop could use a makeover. Better info with more historical details and a few new pictures.
Also, the page about the architect of this church, C. Weber, is improved; an expanded biography and a more complete and chronologic list of works.

Noord-Brabant updates




New is a page about the churches in the Geldrop-Mierlo municipality, as well as a page about one of its churches, the St. Jozef in Geldrop. See picture. 

Also, the page about the St. Willibrordus in Berkel-Enschot is updated with new and improved pictures, as well as better text.

Architects updated

One new pictures was added to each of the following architect's pages: N. Molenaar Sr., Th. Asseler and E.J. Margry and associates. The latter page is also improved in several more ways: more accurate lists of works, and more biographical information.

Noord-Holland, new church


A new church in the Noord-Holland section, about the St. Jacobus in Tuitjenhorn, a neo-Gothic creation by architect Th. Molkenboer, the page about whom is also, once again, expanded.

Noord-Holland updates

When I announced a few months ago that all the pictorial indexes were completely renewed, I obviously had forgotten about the two pages for Noord-Holland. That has been corrected now.

In the same province is a new page about Ouder Amstel municipality, mostly an updated version of the page about Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. 

En dat laatste even in het Nederlands: een nieuwe tweetalige pagina over de gemeente Ouder Amstel vervangt de oude Engelstalige pagina over Ouderkerk aan de Amstel.

Architects updated

The pages about architects Th. Molkenboer and A.C. Bleijs have both been given a much needed major overhaul, resulting in much more complete biographies and lists of works.

Another architect


Another page about a 19th-century catholic architect: Th. Asseler (1823-1879) with a short biography, a long list of his religious works and a few pictures. Like this one.

Two more architects

New pages about two more architects; J.H. Tonnaer and P.J. Soffers, both architects of catholic churches. The page about Tonnaer has a nice basic biography and a list of his churches in the Netherlands and Belgium. Soffers is a big mystery, because despite his long list of more than 30 churches and his obvious great importance, virtually nothing is known about him. A tentative page that I hope to expand to a higher level some day.

First updates of 2017

Happy new year! And what a nice start of the year I have for you.

Almost by tradition, the 1st of January in the Netherlands is the date when former municipalities merge into a new bigger one. This year this happened to the municipalities of Schijndel, Sint-Oedenrode and Veghel in the Noord-Brabant province. A good opportunity to transform the old Veghel page, add pictures of the churches in Sint-Oedenrode and call the new page Meierijstad. Sorry, no pictures of places in the former Schijndel municipality yet.

Also, two more pages about architects, W.Th. van Aalst and J.J.M. van Halteren

En natuurlijk wens ik alle lezers die liever de Nederlandstalige pagina's bezoeken ook een gelukkig nieuw jaar. En voor hen de mededeling dat er een nieuwe tweetalige pagina is over de gloednieuwe gemeente Meierijstad die niet alleen de oude (alleen Engelstalige) pagina over Veghel vervangt maar ook kerken in Sint-Oedenrode bevat.
