From their own backgrounds, personalities and life experiences, entrepreneur Fernand Huts and art historian Katharina van Cauteren write their own story about the same subject: the Golden Age of the Southern Netherlands in the Middle Ages. In their own style and without any consultation with each other, they give their own vision on the development of capitalism, the medieval world in which art, industry, agriculture, trade and finance were established.

This book has been published on the occasion of the exhibition The Birth of Capitalism. Golden Age of the Southern Netherlands (2016).
