      Dear in-Christ all!

      This display was also part of the Met's show on Byzantium last year, and is
      stunning. A significant part of the collection is quite curious:
      Latin-inscribed iconography. One needs to remember that St Catherine was under the
      protection of the Latin Patriarch for centuries. These so-called Crusader icons
      are absolutely amazing.

      Cheers,

      Vova H.
