Beeldenstorm (Iconoclastic Fury)

de beeldenstorm

At the first iconoclastic in August, the Confraternity chapel does not suffer any damage. A second iconic storm takes place in October. The chapel was now also destroyed. One of the iconoclasts was former singer Jan Bentync, who destroyed the organ and the carvings in the chapel. He would have motivated his revenge action with the words: “They have prevented me from singing, but I will ban them from playing the organ.”
