Rademan

by rademan

I would love very much to find out more of the St Martin's Church, and their contact details,

I also would really feel blessed if i could find info regarding to my ancestal grandparents and any living family, Rademan and Bygodt. It would mean a lot to me and my husbands family Des Pres(du Preez) his ancestral grandfather was Hercules and ancestral grandmother Cecilia D'Artis.

My dream would be to visit Kortrijk it looks so beautiful.

When you are in Ypres, you also should visit 'In Flanders Fields' Museum, with eye-witness accounts of the Great War ('14-'18).

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
John McCrae, 2/3 May 1915

The TOWN HALL was built in a...

by annelies77

The TOWN HALL was built in a late gothic-renaissance style. The Aldermen's Chamber, on the ground floor, was used as a court. Upstairs, the Council Hall was the place where laws were made in the old days. Both rooms have a mantelpiece dating back to the 16th century. The sculptors are still unknown. Please take notice of the stained window glasses and the mural paintings. Two topographic maps are to be seen on the walls of the Council Chamber: the left one is a map of the 'Kasselrij', the one on the right-hand side represents the city of Kortrijk and its surrounding area (1641).After leaving the Town Hall, we take a look at the facade of the building, decorated with the statues of the Counts of Flanders. Now we are standing on the Market Square, in the middle of which we can see the Belfry.

Street scenes

by Martin_S.

In the first pic you find the BELFRY, the only remaining part of the Cloth-Hall. The statue on top is Mercurius the god of trade, placed there in the 18th century.
There is also a war memorial attached.
The second picture shows a fountain, no special reason, just liked the flowing curves.
The last picture show a plaque we found on a wall, have no idea what is written there, could not decipher the script and I tried several different spellings on the internet with no success.

November 2010, UPDATE: just got a letter from our friend Patrick and he has translated the inscription for us
"ANTTIQUISSIMA OPPIDI-CORTRACENI SUPERSTETI "
"As the oldest of the city of Kortrijk am I maintained"

Thanks Patrick

Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk - Van Dyck Painting.

by breughel

In a chapel of the left transept hangs the "The Raising of the Cross" by Antoon van Dyck. The painting ordered by canon Braye arrived in Kortrijk in 1631 coming from Antwerp where Van Dyck was active. The painter received 600 Florins for this large painting in the style of Rubens.
The French revolutionaries took the painting in 1794 and it was only in 1817 that this work was recuperated.
I agree with other VT members visiting the church that there are more popular paintings by Van Dyck than this one.

I liked the baroque high altar but found no information about it.
