You pulled away from your best friend’s embrace when you heard an extremely familiar voice from the front door calling out for you. Your whole body stiffened when you heard a body being thrown on the floor – along with multiple grunts and sounds of a fist hitting something.  You looked around and you’ve noticed that there is someone missing in the living room.

Byzantine Monuments of Thessaloniki/ The church of Hagia Sophia:

Mosaics from the central dome of the church. The church was built in the 8th century A.D, during the Iconoclastic period, so it wasn’t decorated with saintly figures until after the prevalence of the Iconodules- those who championed the representation of holy figures. The mosaic of the dome was laid at the time with an image of the Ascension of Christ- the central figure supported by two angels. Below him, the Virgin Mary, flanked by two angels and the twelve apostles are represented.

I love the intention behind all the “Jesus only had twelve followers” things. However, I feel the need to point out that Jesus had more than twelve followers. He had twelve who were named as his apostles, but he had more than twelve disciples.
There were the female followers- Mary the Mother of Christ, Mary Magdalene, Susanna, Joanna, etc. There were the two names on the road to Emmaus- Cleopas and one unnamed. And there were others. Large crowds followed him. Five thousand were there to hear him speak when he multiplied the loaves and fishes. Maybe only three of them stayed at his side while he died, but LOTS of people followed Christ. That’s why they crucified him. That’s why people (beginning with St. Stephen) died for him even shortly after his crucifixion. He wasn’t just some weirdo only twelve men would listen to.

On this day in 1504, Sodoma completed his fresco project for the refectory (monastic dining room) of Santa Anna in Camprena, an Olivetan convent near the Tuscan town of Pienza. Begun a little less than a year earlier on 10 July 1503, Sodoma had been asked to paint a frieze of grotesques on the window wall framing scenes from the Life of St. Anne and roundel portraits of saints. A fresco triptych showing the Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes decorates the end wall, while a Pietà flanked by a scene showing St. Benedict Blessing the Constitutions of the Olivetan Congregation and another depicting St. Anne with the Virgin Mary and Christ Child Adored by Two Olivetan Monks decorates the entrance wall. Sodoma was then invited by the Olivetans to decorate the main cloister of Monte Oliveto Maggiore with scenes from the life of Saint Benedict, completing a project begun by Luca Signorelli.
