🇺🇸4 juillet 1775 🇺🇸 Une date historique pour nos voisins américains car c'est la date qui marque la fameuse indépendance...
Ici la St Bartholomew's Church sur la 50ème avenue s'inspire d'un tympan d'une abbatiale française dont je parle depuis quelques jours...
Si vous suivez régulièrement mes publications, vous devinerez facilement de quelle abbatiale il s'agit !
📍New York - USA 🇱🇷As catedrais de Nova Iorque sao uma atração a parte. E tem muito mais do que apenas a turística St. Patrick Cathedral. Situada na Park Ave, entre as ruas 50 e 51th (end: 25 Park Ave, New York, NY 10022) a St. Bartholomew’s Church possui uma arquitetura Neo-Bizantina de estarrecer os olhos! Além disso, ela tem o maior orgão entre as catedrais da cidade (ranqueado entre os 10 maiores do mundo). Vale a pena assistir a missa de domingo que combina o orgão com seu famoso coral, é de arrepiar! ---------------------------------------------------

Monastery of St Bartholomä
One of the most photographed icons of Berchtesgaden is the St Bartholomä monastery. Its just about on all the postcards! Known for its iconic wine-red domes, this pilgrim church can only be reached by boat. As well as sitting along the lake shore of the country’s deepest lake, this traditional church also sits in front of Germany’s second highest mountain, Mt Waltzman.
I don't have a photo of Notre Dame de Paris. Therefore, I am publishing a photo of this small church in Germany!
But my heart and mind with all Parisians in these difficult days.
The stone statue on the right is a depiction of the saint and 1st Century martyr, St Bartholomew, at the Duomo de Milano in Milan, Italy; created by Italian sculptor Marco d’Agrate, c.1562. (Very relevant to me as I work at @st_bartholomews_hospital site).
He isn't draped in a cloak, it's his own skin. For spreading the Catholic Christian faith around Persia (Iran), Armenia (Turkey) and Mesopotamia (Iraq) he was flayed alive—the skin of his body cut into strips, then pulled off, leaving his body open and bleeding, wrote Fr. Paolo O. Pirlo, in 'My First Book of Saints.' He was then beheaded & crucified.
In 2002 Gunther von Hagens used his plastination technique to create the model on the left which depicts St Bartholomew, the first time a version of him has been made from real human remains. I was raised Catholic so I've always had an interest in saints and holy relics (don't ask me if I'm a practicing Catholic! My answer is always "practice makes perfect and I'm far from perfect" 😉) That's why I used to do a Sacred Sunday feature of a holy relic on this account every week. But there's no point anymore! The @instagram algorithm is so all over the place that unless notifications are on, posts don't seem to get seen at the right time anyway. But I certainly will be exploring more holy relics as part of my MA and personal research. If you swipe ⬅ you'll see that the legend of St Bartholomew is still very much relevant. The third statue is of the Apostle; this time by Damien Hirst. It's called 'Exquisite Pain' (2006) and is on long-term loan to one of my churches, the Anglo-Catholic 'St Bartholomew's The Great' right by my place of work in West Smithfield. It's incredible to behold #humanremains#plastination#plastinate#remains2beseen#gunthervonhagens#church#stbartholomew#martyrdom#stbartholomews#martyr#relic#holyrelic#catholicism#catholic#christianity#christian#milan#damienhirst#london#westsmithfield#stbarts
