Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Revisiting tonight this blog of my late sister (in a late hour of the night, too), I find that my first post here, from August 16th, 2016, precedes directly my last one, published just a while ago. Both of them speak about the same —or almost—… Eight months and ten days ago, three days after… Continue reading Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Medieval European Art -and Catalan-Occitan Romanesque Art in particular- was one of those corners she knew quite… Continue reading Catalan Romanesque Art – World heritage and cradle of our national identity
