Noord-Hollands Archief, Haarlem

Presentation website “700 jaar Janskerk”

In 2018 it will have been 700 years since the Janskerk in Haarlem, currently the publiekscentrum of the Noord-Hollands Archief, was consecrated so that it could be used for Catholic services. From then on the members of the convent had their own large church. This entire year the Noord-Hollands Archief has been celebrating this anniversary with various events. Now we conclude our anniversary year with the presentation of a new website.

The website features extensive, thoroughly researched information about the history of the Janskerk, the convent, and the Order of Saint John to which the institution belonged. In addition it has information about the history of religious life in medieval Haarlem. The central theme of the website is ‘gedenken, vieren en dankbaar zijn’ (commemorating, celebrating, and being grateful). Commemoration played a part in many aspects of medieval life.

You are cordially invited to celebrate the presentation of the website with us, on Tuesday November 6th, 2018. The event will be in Dutch.
