long version

version The "short version", whose appearance shortly precedes the introduction in the 1460s of block book (Woodblock printing)s (books printed from carved blocks of wood, both text and images on the same block), first dates to around 1450, from the Netherlands. It is mostly an adaptation of the second chapter of the "long version", and contains eleven woodcut pictures. The first ten woodcuts are divided into 5 pairs, with each set showing a picture of the devil (Christian teaching about the Devil) presenting one of the 5 temptations, and the second picture showing the proper remedy for that temptation. The last woodcut shows the dying man, presumably having successfully navigated the maze of temptations, being accepted into heaven, and the devils going back to hell (Hell in Christian beliefs) in confusion. thumb cybercafe IICD Kita, Mali ( cybercafe IICD Kita, Mali.jpg) The '''International Institute for Communication and Development''' (IICD) is a non-profit foundation (foundation (charity)) established by the Ministry for Development Cooperation of the Netherlands in 1996.

In the case of Tongeren this traditional claim was supported by excavations in the 1980s, when under the medieval church remains of a 4th century church were identified. Other historic churches in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany were dedicated to the saint, e.g. the Basilica of Saint Servatius in Maastricht, the Abbey of Saint Servatius (Grimbergen Abbey) in Grimbergen, and the collegiate church of Saint Servatius in Quedlinburg Beets''' (13 September 1814 – 13 March 1903) was a Netherlands Dutch theologian, writer and poet.

by the fact that in the age group under 35, 69% are non-affiliated. However, those who ''do'' identify with a religious denomination tend to be more profoundly religious than in the past. Religious belief is also regarded as a very personal affair, as is illustrated by the fact that 60% of self-described believers are not affiliated with any organised religion. There is a stronger stress on positive sides of belief, with Hell and the concept of damnation being pushed into the background. One quarter of non-believers sometimes pray, but more in a sense of meditative self-reflection. Freedom of education has been guaranteed by the Dutch constitution since 1917, and schools run by religious groups (especially Catholic and Protestant) are funded by the government. All schools must meet strict quality criteria. Three political parties in the Dutch parliament (CDA (Christian Democratic Appeal), ChristianUnion, and SGP (Reformed Political Party)) base their policy on Christian belief in varying degrees. Although the Netherlands is a secular state, in some municipalities (Municipalities of the Netherlands) where the Christian parties have the majority, the council meetings are opened by prayer. Municipalities in general also give civil servants a day off on Christian religious holidays, such as Easter and the Ascension of Jesus.

Romilly did successfully escape however, whilst the ''Prominente'' were staying at "Oflag VII-D" Tittmoning Castle (Tittmoning). The camp was home to some Dutch (Netherlands) officers amongst whom was captain Machiel van den Heuvel, "Vandy". Romilly and Vandy knew each other from their Colditz time where Vandy was the Dutch escape officer. Vandy was transferred to Tittmoning because of his leading role as escape officer and the Germans thought he could do no more harm in Tittmoning where most prisoners were older officers of general rank. Vandy however had his next escape plan ready and together with two Dutch officers, Romilly abseil (Abseiling)ed down the castle walls. The remainder of the ''Prominente'' hid in the castle in hopes of conveying the impression that they had all escaped. After four days they were all discovered. Romilly, in spite of the 3,000 men that were searching for him, succeeded in reaching the Allied lines.

The '''Netherlands''' (

The Netherlands' name literally means "Low Country (Low Countries)", inspired by its low and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one metre above sea level (Above mean sea level). Most of the areas below sea level are man-made. Since the late 16th century, large areas (polders) have been reclaimed (land reclamation) from the sea and from lakes, amounting to nearly 17% of the country's current land mass.

With a population density of 406 people per km² – 497 if water is excluded – the Netherlands is a very densely populated country (List of sovereign states and dependent territories by population density) for its size. Only Bangladesh, South Korea and Taiwan have both a larger population and a higher population density. Nevertheless, the Netherlands is the world's second largest exporter of food and agriculture products, after the United States. Netherlands: Agricultural exports top 80 billion Euros Holland is world-leading exporter of agri-food products

The Netherlands was one of the first countries in the world to have an elected parliament, and since 1848 it has been governed as a parliamentary (parliamentary system) democracy and a constitutional monarchy, organised as a unitary state. The Netherlands has a long history of social tolerance and is generally regarded as a liberal (liberalism) country, having legalised abortion, prostitution and euthanasia, while maintaining a progressive drugs policy (drug policy of the Netherlands). In 2001 it became the world's first country to legalize same-sex marriage (same-sex marriage in the Netherlands).

The Netherlands is a founding member of the EU (European Union), Eurozone, G-10 (Group of Ten (economic)), NATO, OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), WTO (World Trade Organization) and a part of the trilateral Benelux economic union. The country is host to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and five international courts: the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The first four are situated in The Hague, as is the EU's criminal intelligence agency Europol and judicial co-operation agency Eurojust. This has led to the city being dubbed "the world's legal capital". , specifically, ''"In the 1990s, during his term as United Nations Secretary-General, Boutros Boutros-Ghali started calling The Hague the world's legal capital."'' The Netherlands is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The Netherlands has a market-based mixed economy, ranking 17th of 177 countries according to the Index of Economic Freedom.
