Seconded: there's a house in Boitsfort in Brussels. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.129.30.135 (talk) 20:59, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Move?[edit]

What is the point of moving this just to switch the names? Adam Bishop (talk) 05:20, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

An older Brussels date[edit]

The Terarken hospice in Brussels is listed as a marginal béguinage, established for the support of 12 poor women by the Clutinck aldermen between 1218 and 1226. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.129.30.135 (talk) 21:02, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Why is this article titled "Beghards and Beguines" when Beguines were by far more important?174.31.156.150 (talk) 17:41, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

In the introduction it is important to stress what Beguines stood for rather than what some of them were accused of doing. There is no evidence that beguines were influenced by Catharism and I do not see a citation for that. Discussion of the supposed "Free Spirit" heresy belongs in the body of the work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hadewijchrevelations (talkcontribs) 16:07, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

"whose roots are in spiritual community"[edit]

I have NO idea what is meant by that phrase - and I'm a MA student in church history with a background in monastic studies. So could someone please expand it... Ender's Shadow Snr (talk) 10:45, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
