Very nice stained glass window of the town of Drongen in Belgium (“Tronchiennes” in French)
The Abbey and the monastery of Drongen are said to have been founded in the seventh century by the monk St. Amand (or Amandus). These buildings were destroyed by the Normans in 853.
They were rebuilt by the counts of Flanders. Victim of the religious wars that followed the Protestant Reformation, they were again destroyed in 1578 by the Calvinists. The Abbey was rebuilt once again in 1638, then the monastery was restored from 1638 to 1698.
Following a fire in 1727, the Bell Tower of the Church was restored in 1734, in a different style. In 1797, the French occupied and then sold the Abbey. In 1804, Liévin Bauwens used the monastery as a cotton mill. The current monastery and Abbey, bought back and set up by the Jesuits, date back to 1859.
