Its so exciting that so much is undiscovered but IS being found slowly bit by bit. So much we don't know but are waiting in time to find out Smile

This sculpture is by Marco d’Agrate, 1562 (Duomo cathedral, Milan-Italy)
This is a sculpture of St. Bartholomew who was an Apostle that was said to be skinned alive. If you look closely you will notice that his robe is actually not a robe at all, but his skin. "



This is what someone wrote about this...……………

"HE was flayed alive—the skin of his body cut into strips, then pulled off, leaving his body open and bleeding for a long time, then beheaded, wrote Fr. Paolo O. Pirlo, SHML, in My First Book of Saints.

Why? Because he was to die the Persian way in the “most barbarous country of the East” in the ancient times; because he converted Polymius, the king of Armenia, to Christianity; because Astyages, the king’s brother, ordered his death; because spreading the Catholic faith is a great crime, noted John Francis Fenion in Saint Bartholomew, Volume 2 of Catholic Encyclopedia."

Amazing 110 years old library in Porto, Portugal that it inspired J.K. Rowling for the Hogwarts library in Harry Potter! ( something else she couldn't think of on her own )
