Additional remarks
Additional remarks In the 19th century, the slabs of the Amelbergakerk - particularly those that were situated near the communion benches - were built into the walls of the side aisles. This relocation was ordered by Mgr. Van Bommel, bishop of Liege. According to Belonje (1961), this slab was placed upside down in the wall.
