Belgium

Historically, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg were known as the Low Countries; it once covered a somewhat larger area than the current Benelux group of states. The region was called Belgica in Latin, after the Roman province of Gallia Belgica, which covered more or less the same area. From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, the area of Belgium was a prosperous and cosmopolitan centre of commerce and culture. From the 16th century until the Belgian Revolution in 1830, when Belgium seceded from the Netherlands, the area of Belgium served as the battleground between many European powers, causing it to be dubbed the "Battlefield of Europe," a reputation strengthened by both World Wars.

Antoon Sanderus (September 15, 1586 - January 10 or January 16, 1664), born in Antwerp, was a Flemish historian, philologian and theologian.Sanderus studied theology in Leuven and Douai. After being ordained a priest in Ghent, Sanderus served as priest in Oosteeklo. He was an opponent of anabaptism in Flanders.
As a writer he Latinized his name from Antoon Sanderus to Antonius Sanderus. His greatest work is his richly illustrated Flandria Illustrata, Sive Descriptio Comitatus per totem terrarum orbem celeberrimi (first print in Cologne, 1641-44). Of this work two Books were published, the others remained unfinished at his death. The book contains a description and history of various Flemish towns and cities; also printed and published by De Vos, Brussels 1735.
Other works written by Sanderus are a hagiography Hagiologium Flandriae sive de sanctis eius provinciae (first printed in Antwerp, 1625); a poem on Peter Paul Rubens (September 1621); an inventory of manuscripts held by various libraries Bibliotheca belgica manuscripta (first printed in Lille, 1641-43) and a history of Brabantian abbies and monasteries Chorographia sacra Brabantiae (printed and published by De Vos, Brussels, 1659).Flanders is now  the northern part of Belgium.
