The Network of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) shows the variety of cultural expressions that communities, groups or individuals themselves recognize as intangible cultural heritage. They have registered this ICH in the Network. The Dutch Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage is therefore not responsible for the content of the description.


The Terebinth Foundation is mainly concerned with the rituals and customs surrounding burial and burial, including the associated symbolism. This includes the tangible heritage too: old and new cemeteries, historical grave monuments and other memorials. 

Everyone of us is involved in this intangible heritage. Of course not everyone is buried, but it also is about dealing with urns and ashes scattering. These are part of our intangible funerary heritage as well. Our burial culture has a long history: from dolmens, via grave fields and urn hills, to burial according to Christian rules - first in and around the church, later in the cemetery outside the built-up area. Until the arrival of the Islamic cemetery and the natural cemetery.
