The Agnietenkapel (the Chapel of Holy Agnes) is the only medieval chapel in good condition in Amsterdam. It was built in 1397 and rebuilt after a fire in 1470. From the foundation of the Athenaeum Illustre - precursor of the University of Amsterdam—by Vossius and Barlaeus in 1632 the Agnietenkapel was the center of scientific activities. It is now the University's history museum. Portraits of scholars and other famous men are located in the oldest lecture hall in their original settings. The series of portraits was a gift from the local merchant collector Gerardus van Papenbroeck in 1743.
