About the Symposium

This year marks the 450th anniversary of the Beeldenstorm, the wave of iconoclasm that swept over the Low Countries in 1566. This defining moment in Netherlandish history will be commemorated with a two-day symposium, 9 and 10 December 2016, which will consider the Beeldenstorm in relation to iconoclasm as a global phenomenon.
