Prof. Jos Koldeweij specializes in the visual arts and applied art of the late Middle Ages. He obtained his doctorate in 1985 with a thesis on Saint Servatius of Maastricht, in which he reconstructed the genesis of a saint on the basis of an analysis of relics.

This broad, cultural-historical approach characterizes his research. He has published many articles, books and exhibition catalogues on a.o. the culture of medieval pilgrimage (pilgrim badges), medieval painting, late medieval urban and popular culture, the cult of relics and church treasures.
His current research is focused on the late medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch (c. 1450-1516).

Koldeweij organized the following exhibitions: 'Jheronimus Bosch - Visions of Genius' ('s-Hertogenbosch 2016), Love & Devotion. The Gruuthusemanuscript: art and culture around 1400' (Bruges 2013), 'Faith and Fortune. Jewellery and Devotion in Medieval Flanders' (Brugge 2007), 'Hieronymus Bosch' (Rotterdam 2001), 'In Buscoducis. Art and Culture in 's-Hertogenbosch in the Middle Ages and Renaissance' ('s-Hertogenbosch 1990) and 'Silver from 's-Hertogenbosch' ('s-Hertogenbosch 1985).
