Vrijheid, Vetes, Vagevuur

Until 7 May 2023

Exhibition

Vrouwen met een overdaad aan blinkende juwelen, krijgers met polsstoksperen en opgeschoren haar. Gewelddadige vetes tussen clans. Een landschap waar een uitzonderlijk hoog aantal kastelen, kerken en kloosters de horizon domineerde. Dit is Tota Frisia tijdens de volle en late middeleeuwen.

Tota Frisia

Vrijheid, Vetes, Vagevuur: de middeleeuwen in het Noorden laat de nieuwe wetenschappelijke inzichten zien over de samenleving van het noorden in de volle en late middeleeuwen. Het Friesland van toen, Tota Frisia, strekte zich uit van het huidige Friesland tot aan de Wezer in Noord-Duitsland. In tegenstelling tot elders in Europa bestuurden de Friezen zichzelf, kozen ze hun eigen rechters, hadden ze een eigen taal en een eigen kenmerkende kledingstijl. Deze grote tentoonstelling sluit naadloos aan op Wij Vikingen in 2019.

Verdwenen wereld

Het Fries Museum brengt dit tot nu toe onderbelichte hoofdstuk uit de middeleeuwse geschiedenis tot leven aan de hand van blinkende muntschatten, fonkelende juwelen, prachtige geschriften en eeuwenoude relieken. De tentoonstelling en de bijbehorende publicatie zijn samengesteld door Diana Spiekhout, conservator terpencultuur en middeleeuwen. Zij promoveerde in 2020 aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen op het middeleeuwse kastelenlandschap. Spiekhout is een veelgevraagd expert op het gebied en was eerder dit jaar te zien in de NPO-serie Het verhaal van Nederland, in de aflevering Friezen en Franken over de vroege middeleeuwen.

Familietentoonstelling

Niet alleen de geschiedenisliefhebber kan zijn hart ophalen, Vrijheid, Vetes, Vagevuur is ook bij uitstek geschikt voor een uitje met het hele gezin. Kinderen van 8 t/m12 jaar kunnen met een schatkaart zelfstandig op ontdekkingstocht door de tentoonstelling. Achter luikjes, in laadjes en op andere 'verborgen' plekken ontdekken ze de verdwenen wereld van de middeleeuwen op hun eigen manier.
