Inside the Church of the Beguinage in Brussels. One of the many tombstones of the beguines that were buried here in the 17th and 18th century. The transcription of the old-Dutch text on this stone reads : " Here lies buried miss Joanna Urselinkx, beguine, headmistress in her time. Died on the first of August 1690. Here lies buried miss Anna De Maelder, beguine, honoured, died on May 1st 1709".
