Church | XIII-XVI | Gothic | Roman Catholic Church
On the occasion of Open Churches 2021 (Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June), you can enjoy unique images and expert explanations of the recently restored Marianum, the recently preserved St. Anne's altarpiece, the St. Leonard's altarpiece, the Passion altarpiece and the St. Catherine's altarpiece via digital means in the comfort of your own living room - coronaproof permitting.
The Madonna of the Rosary, locally usually called the Marianum, and the four large viewing boxes testify to the refined artistry of the various artists who worked on these religiously inspired artefacts in a line of business for which Flanders is still famous far beyond its borders.
Your acquaintance with these five masterpieces will undoubtedly provide a stimulus for visiting Zoutleeuw in the not-too-distant future to admire the other masterpieces from its unsurpassed St Leonard's Church. You can take part via the website of the town of Zoutleeuw, the facebook page of the town of Zoutleeuw or, if it is coronaproof, by visiting the church on the above-mentioned days during the normal opening hours of the church (2 pm to 5 pm).
