Aardenburg Netherlands.
St. Bavo Church is a protestant church in the Dutch town of Aardenburg in Zeeland. It is included in the "Top 100 of the Department for Conservation" 1990.
The tower from 1220 with the oldest part of the church, the nave and the transept, in the Netherlands is the only major example of pure Scheldt Gothic, a regional architecture from the transition from Romanesque to Gothic style from the first half of the 13th century . The church was built in the years after 1243 on the basis of an earlier church building.
The origins of the church lies with the monks of the St. Bavo's Abbey in Ghent, who built a small church in 959 at this location. The population growth in the 13th century Aardenburg become a town with 5,000 inhabitants, so the need arose for a larger church. This Romanesque church burned down in 1202.
In the fourteenth century, the church expanded with the elongated hall choir and built in the seventeenth century was a home. This serves as a vestry.
After the restoration, which was completed in 1956, part of the church (nave, transept, tower and storm washers) owned by the State of the Netherlands and as such was managed by the Government Buildings Agency. It is transferred along with 28 other monuments on January 15, 2016 at the National Monument Organization. [1] Reason for the transfer is that the object of the government has no function, but should be well managed and preserved because of its historic value.
