Also, flying buttresses!
Fr. Benedict: "You're not really going to take that picture, are you?"
In the chiesa di Santa Maria Addolorata
Fr. Cassian, carrying the reliquary of Santa Scolastica, followed by the bishop.
To all a good night.
|Kitties' first snow day. Bertie got really into it.|
|Henry and Pippin, not so much.|
|But Pippy decided that he hates being left out more than he hates having cold feet.|
|Day trip to Spoleto in February to visit the nearest art supply shop,|
and hit the Indian for lunch,
then to the cathedral to get some shots of the
frescoes in the apse before the light went. A good day.
|Crypt chapel of San Girolamo church in Spoleto. 11th century, but built out of the bits of the old temple of Jupiter that lies under it.|
|Some of San. G's 11th century frescoes. Last Supper.|
|Lots of climate control equipment on these. But you could walk right up to them. Even touch them, if you don't care.|
|The arch built in the time of Tiberius to commemorate his son, Germanicus. At least, I think I remember that's what the sign said.|
|The old Roman street.|
|Absolutely stunning, riveting fresco inside San Girolamo. |
This pic does no credit to its glowing magnificence whatever.
