Project: The 'Geuzenhoek': religious coexistence and multiple identities in rural Flanders (1600-1750)

2016-10-01 – 2020-12-31


This project will analyze the interaction between Catholics and Protestants in the so-called 'Geuzenhoek', a number of bi-confessional rural villages in the vicinity of Oudenaarde (1600-1750). The central hypothesis is that the villagers had 'multiple identities', allowing co-existence between both confessional groups.
