We have spoken before about Liévin de Hamme (1822-1898). In 1868, Tinco Lycklama spent several weeks with this Flemist priest, discovering Palestine and its holy sites. Father Liévin has been largely neglected, but his story is remarkable as he wrote the first ‘tourist guides’ for Palestine, and accompanied thousands of pilgrims through the region.
In his native Hamme, at arts center “idplusart”, curator and former journalist Hugo de Looze is staging an exhibition about the life of Liévin de Hamme, on February 18-26, 2017. And it will prominently feature Tinco’s story.
We will also feature the story of father Liévin at future events in Cannes and Friesland.
