The Roman Catholic hermitage of Our Lady of the Enclosed Garden is situated in the former reformed church of Warfhuizen, a village in the extreme north of the Netherlands. It is the only Dutch hermitage currently inhabited by a hermit. The name draws upon the traditional epithet for the Virgin Mary (“Our Lady”) of hortus conclusus or enclosed garden, a reference to the Song of Songs that indicates the Virgin’s “perpetual virginity and at the same time her fruitful maternity”.
