#wereldzee: George Harinck follows Kuyper to the ancient ocean

Om de oude wereldzee at the HDCShortly after Professor Emeritus Bert de Vries’s essay, What Kuyper Saw and Thought: Abraham Kuyper’s Visit to the Holy Land, was published in this year’s Review, I happened upon this hashtag in my Twitter feed: #wereldzee. I was surprised to see what I thought was a reference to the subject of De Vries’s essay, Kuyper’s Om de oude werldzee (vol. 1, vol. 2), in tweet form. In looking into this coincidence I learned, lo and behold, that Bavinck Society member Prof. George Harinck is in the process of shooting an eight-part documentary on Kuyper’s Mediterranean journey with the acclaimed Dutch filmmaker Hans Hermans.

The documentary’s episodes follow Kuyper’s itinerary in his travelogue. The series will be aired on IKON (Netherlands Interdenominational Broadcasting Company):

Om de Oude Wereldzee is a new eight-part documentary series about clashing culture and religions, past and present. Watch it every Sunday evening at 8:30 p.m. starting May 10, 2015, on NPO2.
