In 768 the Anglo-Saxon missionary Lebuinus crossed the River IJssel and arrived in Deventer. He built a little wooden church on the spot where the Great or Lebuinus Church, which is named after him, now stands. Today’s Gothic church with its vaulted ceiling reaches high into the heavens. The Roman crypt gives you a very different spatial experience. Whereas you feel the huge distances when you walk into the church, in contrast in the crypt everything is close by. It is much more intimate. The well in the crypt is covered with a grille and is connected to the River IJssel. It overflows whenever the IJssel bursts its banks and then gradually the water recedes.
