  • Frequently buildings are also defined by the significance deliberately attached to the building in question by the commissioning authority. This also applies for buildings from the Middle Ages and the significance of medieval religious buildings has more than once been the subject of research. We are intrigued by the question whether such a significance can also be pointed out in profane medieval buildings.

    We have chosen the castle-building programme of Floris V in West Friesland as our object of research. In doing so we distinguish two levels: the level of the type of castle –...

  • In the introduction the unique character of Valkenburg castle is pointed out in comparison with other castles and ruins in the Netherlands. As it is an elevated castle (rare for the Netherlands) it does not fit in with the typo-chronological outline of H.L. Janssen.

  • The ruin of Valkenburg castle (province of Limburg) is situated on a hill in the southernmost part of the Netherlands.

Nederhemert dates back to the fourteenth century and was extended in fourteen building phases to form the castle as it was until the fatal fire in 1945. From that time onwards the burnt-out building was falling into ever further decay. In 2001, prior to the start of the reconstruction, not much more was left of it than a ruin of dilapidated, but from a building-historical point of view very valuable cellars...
