Through Their Eyes with Cornelia Arens - Begijnhof, Amsterdam

Tour in 
The Netherlands
 minutes long.
In the year 1621, Cornelia now belongs to one of the first groups of empowered and independent women in history although now she is not aware of this. They can marry but choose not to, they live for the lord but can change their minds whenever they please and they did not have to take on the vow of poverty like “regular" nuns. They have created a completely new lifestyle and invented a completely new literary genre: Theology for the people and she feels very proud to take part in all of it.
