What’s the connection between Guido Gezelle and Klerken? Which wordly dead did Sister Imelda do on the day of her entry in the convent? What happens when the priest snaps his four fingers? How much beer had Sister Martha drunk, when she said she was drunk? Did the German crown prince ever stay at the convent of Klerken? Who called Priest Denys ‘silly pigeons’? And where does the word ‘Fiertel’ come from? The story of the convent of Klerken, as it has been written down by author Dries Vanneste, is easy reading and brimful of anecdotes and a mine of information. Preceding the steady extension of the campus of the Institute for Handicapped People Maria ter Engelen is a unique and very interesting history with charming and remarkable people.
