Speaking of which, this is a good time to post some of the amazing art at the pained Monasteries in Romania.
Not only are there the ones dating back to the 1400s, but they are building new ones! Such a fascinating art form. It was nice to see the artist credits on the new ones.
Growing up catholic, it is interesting to see parallel but different imagery.

|All of the Judgement Day paintings have the people being 'reconstituted', even if devoured by wild beasts. Such delightful imagery!|
