The Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbekekapel or Chapel Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbeke is a chapel in the Belgian city of Zottegem. The current chapel was built around 1930, near the doctor Goffaertskliniek. A chapel has been standing since 1717, when a certain Lucas de Naeyer (e) had a place of worship raised on the grounds donated by Jacobus van Wambeke. The chapel was built in Heydensbeke Legidiction of BEEVeghem, Sotteghem Buyten, near the place where, according to legend, a statue of Mary was mysteriously washed in the Deinsbeek (Bettelhovebeek). As a result, the place grew into a place of pilgrimage. The Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbekeelbeeld actually came from the abbey of Affligem, where in 1580 a large statue of Mary was destroyed during the religious troubles. After 1603, two large images and several smaller statues were made with the debris, including that of Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbeke, which ended up in Zottegem by the monk Adrianus Stevens from Zottegem. In 1742 a procession was held with the statue during a plague epidemic; That procession became an annual tradition. In 1743 the first violence of Jan de Licht took place here, when he shot on pilgrims with a gun. A new chapel was built in 1749; The statue of Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbeke was placed in that new chapel on 5 September 1751. In 1798 the prayer place among the French was demolished; The image of Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Deinsbeke was safely housed at the Baron van Meerbeke and brought to the Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Hemelvaartkerk in 1802. The current chapel from 1929 with three bays is single -aisled and built in neo -baro style with a neo -Romanesis choir. The interior has a plastered barrel vault and a neobarok altar.
