Visitors to the Low Countries are often impressed by the cities' cultural and architectural heritage. The lecture guides the student through the medieval and early modern past of the cities of Flanders and Brabant. After examining the representation of the city in medieval and early modern art, the lecturer focusses on the urban network in the Low Countries and the urban economics and politics. He ends by displaying the multiple faces of urban culture.
