Further information

Amen to being buried in and around the church! Joseph II, the Emperor-sexton, in 1784 issues the infamous ordinance on funerals. Not only is the “churchyard” now a banal “cemetery”, but the Bruges funeral rates are rising for a second time in less than 6 weeks. Game on! The Bruggeling strongly opposes now that death also becomes an expensive affair.

This is how the history of the “Rapestik” begins, where every funerary monument tells a story. Two hundred years of funerary history and cult of the dead await those who walk melancholically along the many corridors.
