I took this picture (01.02.2021) in the morning, +3°Celsius, a bicycle trip of 48 km. (an electric bicycle)
A grey bad day for take picture, misty and light rain, but my trip pure for my health.

De Sint-Petrus en Pauluskerk

According to a document dated 7 March 1145, Symon, bishop of Noyon-Tournai, donated the Hansbeke altar to Goswijn, the abbot of the Drongen abbey.

Installation of stained-glass windows (1890-1905) (87)
In 1889 Lucie married Borluut (img. 33), granddaughter and heiress of Frans
Gisleen Borluut and Sidonie Kervijn, with Count Boudewijn de Bousies (ill.
32). In the 1990s, the couple had 14 church windows (in plain frosted glass)
replaced by stained glass windows. These stained-glass windows exist
The windows in the high choir represent the church patrons Peter and Paul and
bear the alliance coat of arms of the Borluut-Kervijn family. The windows in the
side aisles bear the alliance coat of arms de Bousies-Borluut: they depict
scenes from the Holy Scriptures and the nominal saints of the donors and of their.
The windows of the church patterns were probably painted in 1890, shortly after the marriage
of the donors. The windows may also date with the
namesakes of the donors (Balduinus and Lucia) from the same year while
the placement of the other windows may perhaps be situated in the
birth year of the children.
The 14 stained-glass windows were placed without the drawings of them being
Royal Commission of Monuments in Brussels were approved and
without the authorization provided for by Royal Decree of 16.08.1824,
had been granted.

I hope you like it.
