Begijnhof Or Beguinage - Review

The lives of medieval men was always under the threat of war or some sort of military operation. Over the years the surplus women formed a religious movement were they joined Sisterhoods of the Roman Catholic Church. These women lived in small gated communities, not entirely retiring from the world unlike the lifestyle at an abbey in those days. Called Beguinages they had less strict rules and regulations than abbeys and were more inclusive as well. The Beguinage of Bruges is one such small collection of houses where today the nuns of the Order of Saint Benedict reside. The houses were originally built in the 1th century. A tranquil area with quaint whitewashed houses it is perfect for a stroll and a look into a more austere and pious life. The museum there offers a glimpse into the lives of the medieval nuns and there is a church there as well with a convent garden.
