St. Bartholomew The Great

Visiting Smithfield Market at the weekend, I came across this wonderful church: the Priory Church of St. Bartholomew, founded in AD 1123. as part of a monastery of Augustinian Canons.
Bartholomew was one of the Twelve Apostles, brought to Jesus by Saint Philip. He is reputed to have brought Christianity to Armenia where tradition states that he was later flayed alive and crucified head down.

While these are ruins to the visitors, they are sacred sites to the local people.

The stone mirror of Uqbar

The lowlands of Tsai Khaldun and the Axa Delta marked the southern frontier of Uqbar and on the islands of the delta wild horses procreate.
… As a result of the religious persecutions of the thirteenth century, the orthodox believers of Uqbar sought refuge on these islands, where to this day their obelisks remain and where it is not uncommon to unearth their stone mirrors.
The impostor magician Smerdis one of the heresiarchs of Uqbar had declared the visible universe is an illusion or (more precisely) a sophism. Mirrors… are an abomination because they multiply and disseminate that universe.

El Angel del Gran Poder

The yearly celebration of Jesus del Gran Poder gathers over 40,000 participants/dancers every year in May/June in La Paz, Bolivia. It is now considered part of UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage.  I have published a book about this celebration and you can view the digital version here: Gran Poder
