Mr Monkey visits Ten Duinen 1138, 18th September

"There's a lot of information about the abbey here"

The next gallery told Mr Monkey about the Abbey of the Dunes, and its position in the network of Cistercian abbeys across Europe. He was surprised to find that the abbey had been founded in 1128, but only joined the Cistercian Order in 1138. Mr Monkey examined an illumation showing a pope rather carelessly granting a charter of the abbey, then looked carefully at some tiles from the building.
