Starting Saturday 11 July 2015 visitors to De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam will be able to enjoy a unique time-travel experience all summer long: Journey in Time. History & Royalty. This second edition of Journey in Time features a number of special elements that until now had been hidden from view. The Kerkmeesterskamer (Church Warden’s Room) will be open to the public for the first time. This eighteenth-century period room has long served as a royal suite for our king and queen, foreign heads of state and other dignitaries, including the Dalai Lama, who was once received in this room.
In the autumn of 2015 unique art treasures will be visiting De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam for the exhibition Rome. Emperor Constantine’s Dream. Art Treasures from the Eternal City. Loaned by institutions such as the Vatican Museums these will illustrate one of the most fascinating themes from antiquity: the transformation of Rome in the fourth century AD from a multi-religious imperial capital full of temples with colossal statues of the emperor into the centre of papal power dominated by churches with crosses. Christianity’s evolution in a relatively short time from a small faith community into the dominant religion, of crucial influence on the development of the Western world, is an astonishing success story. A rapid change in its fortunes that can largely be attributed to a single person: Emperor Constantine the Great.
