Monreale, Palermo, Sicily. May, 1988

I'll never forget walking into this cathedral for the first time and looking up. The mosaics, the gold, the stories being illustrated. It's hard not to imagine what it would have been like for someone who perhaps could not read, entering the new cathedral (built in the late 1100s) and seeing the biblical tales miraculously spelled out in bits of colored glass and sparkle.
