Ok, you have to admit, regardless of your thoughts about church, that there is something really cool about seeing Medieval paintings on church walls.
Then I start to think – who was this person? What was their life-like? What was the world around them really like? I don’t mean in a sense that a book tells us, but in a real way. Kind of like the difference between seeing a picture and being there. Pictures can only do a scene so much justice, as any blogger or photographer knows. But it is actually being there and seeing something with your own eyes that takes an experience to a new level.
