2017.11.07 Demolishing the temple

Interior church

Today I have been taking pictures in the “Grote Kerk” in Breda together with my friend Jenny. One of the guardians of the church saw me taking pictures of the ceiling and explained there are 84 crossings that are all different.

Nowadays, the church is a public building. It’s built as a catholic church but the inside was badly demolished in the 16th century during the “Beeldenstorm” and has been a protestant church after that. What is it that people have to ruin things they dislike or don’t understand?
