This exhibition coincides with the 400th anniversary of the founding, in 1607, of the illustrious Franciscan college at Louvain in the Spanish Netherlands, now Belgium. It includes religious silver and other material from several of the Franciscan houses, displayed together for the first time. Indeed, many of the pieces have never previously been publicly exhibited.
