Archbishops of Utrecht
In December, I showed you the grave of bishop Guy van Avesnes, in the Domkerk, the former Utrecht cathedral. Until the reformation, the (arch)bishops of Utrecht were buried in this church. After the reformation, the Domkerk became protestant, and no new bishop was appointed for several centuries.
The Utrecht archbishopric was restored in 1853, and Johannes Zwijsen became the first modern archbishop of Utrecht. I don't know where Zwijsen was buried, but his successors, starting with Andreas Ignatius Schaepman, are buried in the St. Barbara cemetery in Utrecht.
