Netherlands Limburg Maastricht Basilica of Our Lady Basiliek van Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe

The Roman catholic Basilica of Our Lady (in Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek, in Limburgish (Maastrichtian variant): Slevrouwe) is a Romanesque basilica in Maastricht, The Netherlands, dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption. The church is often referred to as the Star of the Sea, after the church’s main devotion, Our Lady, Star of the Sea. The church is dependent of the Diocese of Roermond and was made a Basilica Minor in 1933.

The present-day church is not the first church that was built on this site. Since no archeological research has ever been carried out inside the present building, nothing certain can be said about this. The church’s site, inside the Roman castrum and adjacent to a religious shrine dedicated to the god Jupiter, suggests that the site was once occupied by a Roman temple. It is not unlikely that the town’s first church was built here and that this church in the 4th century became the cathedral of the diocese of Tongeren-Maastricht. It is clear that at one point the church of Saint Servatius became the main church in Maastricht, but throughout the Middle Ages the two churches’ chapters remained rivals.
The present church is largely Romanesque. Blocks of stone from the ancient Roman walls were re-used for the westwork which dates from shortly after 1000 AD. Most of the church was built in the course of the 12th century, including the late 12th century East choir with its two- storey ambulatory with richly decorated capitals.
In the 14th century a parish church was built next to the main church so the main building could be reserved for the chapter’s religious duties. Of this parish church, dedicated to Saint Nicolas, nothing remains as it was demolished in 1837. In the 15th century the present Star of the Sea chapel was added and a century later the Romanesque cloisters were replaced by the present late Gothic cloisters.
After the incorporation of Maastricht in the French First Republic in 1794, the cities religious chapters were dissolved and the church of Our Lady was used for all kinds of purposes by the military garrison. Until 1837 the church remained a blacksmith shop. Many of the church treasures were lost during this period, including a silver reliquary cross with a large particle of the True Cross (now in the Vatican Museums).
From 1887-1917 the church was thoroughly restored by the well-known Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers who basically removed everything that did not fit his view of the ideal Romanesque church.

When curious people in the States (NY-PA-OH) where I had worked in the past ,asked me in different occasions ; ‘What kind of place is this İzmir-Turkey you came from ? .. I used to answer ; Jesus Christ asked apostle St.John ( as his last wish from him ) to bring his beloved mother Mary to Ephesus ( just 60 kilometers from İzmir ) when he was being crucified in Jerusalem — In other words God himself brought his mother to Ephesus to spend rest of her life on earth , St.John established his Church in Ephesus(still standing very old and big brick building with ancient baptismal marble small pool and other structures still standing , it is called St.John’s Church in Ephesus which is build 2000 years ago ) — Heaven on Earth land of Milk and Honey , beautiful weather (
needles to say , in winter never snows in İzmir and no hurricanes or tornados ever seen here ) true homeland of Figs- Grapes and Olives and Apricots and Cherries and excellent biodiversity for millions of years ; on this land called Anatolia . Early people had realized this fact since Neolithic times.. Çatalhöyük , Hattians and Pelasgians and later 12 Ionian colonies by the Mediterranean .
No further explanation ever needed ( what kind of place I came from) after my words above , theological and historical facts have been so clear , as the believers of God ; of course they quickly realized .. How beautiful place this Ephesus/İzmir should be … indeed it really is ..
