Additional remarks (original location) The inscription on the slab informs us that Johan Rudde's relative Gertrude Rudde named Weerte (d.1624) had his remains transferred from the St. Salvatorkerk (St Saviour's Church) to the St. Maartenskerk/Domkerk (St Martin’s Church/Dom Church). Gertrude's heir Anthonis van Haeften (d.1645) had this floor slab placed in the crossing of the Domkerk and was eventually also buried there.
Additional remarks It is unclear whether Johan Rudde's floor slab was transferred to the Domkerk together with his remains, i.e., whether this is Rudde's original slab. It is also possible that Anthonis Haeften commissioned the slab in the 17th century with the intention to be placed in the Domkerk, in memory of Johan Rudde and himself.
