EPAPER: The Charterhouse near 's-Hertogenbosch and Its Connection with the Studio of Jheronimus Bosch (1466-1515)

A few kilometres from the city walls of ‘s-Hertogenbosch an imposing Carthusian monastery was built in the decades around 1500. Its construction coincided with the period when Jheronimus Bosch was a successful painter in that city. Documents proving that he worked for the monastery do not exist. However, there were several direct and indirect forms of contact between the monastery on the one hand and important persons and institutions in the city that held relations with Bosch on the other hand.

Faithful to the Cross in a Moving World: Late Medieval Carthusians as Devotional Reformers

In memoriam Francis Timmermans (Laken, 17/7/1937 - Brussel, 19/11/2015)

Na een professionele carrière op de hoofdzetel van AG Verzekeringen in Brussel, kwam Francis Timmermans pas in de jaren 1990 via archeologische opgravingen met de kartuizerorde in contact. Geboeid door de archeologie, bood hij spontaan zijn hulp als vrijwilliger aan bij een aantal opgravingscampagnes, onder meer in Frankrijk, waar hij kennismaakte met de professionele archeoloog dr. Jean-Luc Mordefroid (Unité de Recherche Archéologique Cartusienne, URAC).

E-PAPER: Five Steps Downhill

Five Steps Downhill. The typological sequence of Carthusian architectural adaption to new surroundings
Elke Nagel

Architecture provides a shell for monastic life ever since. More than others, the eremitic order of the Carthusians relies on seclusion from the world by the built environment. This contribution to session 516 of the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2015 summarises the results of a PhD research project run at Technische Universität München between 2006 and 2012 on Carthusian Architecture.
