Art & Artifacts
 

It appears that the convent was active in printing and producing small devotional pictures (Andachtsbilder) and perhaps tracts. The inventory from March 1465 of Abbess Aacoba van Looz-Heynsberge lists "unum instrumentum ad imprimendas scripturas et ymagines." One known print exists from the convent that depticts Christ in the house of Martha of Bethany.
