Event description
Discover the restless oppositions and violent clashes that ruptured loyalty to Roman Catholicism in the 17th century.

About this Event

The words of Luther, nailed to a church door in 1517, echoed through bourgeois bogs of Holland and Flanders while further south, Venice rose to opulent splendor perched above marshlands to float as a fashion centre, a trade nexus, and the artistic kaleidoscope of complex cultural appropriation.

In both geographic locations water, trade and religion exerted major influences on attitudes and output. Water was the front door to Amsterdam, Delft and Antwerp, while in Venice it was the highway and byways. Trade was the rich blood of commerce that nourished abundant middle class wealth in the north and fostered glitter and a luxurious lifestyle in and around Venice.
