  1. Wow! These are unbelievable. One thing I’ve always wondered about. In a lot of European churches, the pews face each other instead of the main altar area. What was the point of that, do you know, Opher?

  2. As a fellow non-believer, I’m fascinated by secular responses to such places. As you say, history lives in them. Philip Larkin, as so often, hit the right note.

    A serious house on serious earth it is
    In whose blent air all our compulsions meet
    Are recognisd and robed as destinies.
    And that much never can be obsolete
    Since someone will forever be surprising
    A hunger in himself to be more serious
    And gravitating with it to this ground
    Which he once heard was proper to grow wise in
    If only that so many dead lie round.

I'd like to hear from you...
