Antwerp in the 17th century. The Jesuits constructed a building with two richly decorated chapels directly opposite the Saint Charles Borromeo Church. This is where the sodalities gathered. These are fraternities with members who share a faith and have influential positions in society. In fact, they are not dissimilar to service clubs, where the urban elite make interesting contacts.
Wander through the former chapel
Today, on the second floor of the building, you will find the beautiful Nottebohm Room. Recent research has revealed the appearance of the chapel once found there. The ‘Baroque Brotherhoods in the Nottebohm Room’ exhibition invites you to wander around it. Baroque paintings, prints, books and documents bring the chapel back to life. A virtual tour provides insights into the chapel’s structure. You also get to know the members of the sodalities better.
