Marble Tombstones in St. John's Co-Cathedral, Malta.



The cathedral floor is composed of nearly 400 tombs of Knights and officers of the Knights of Malta. Each tombstone is inlaid by a marble slab bearing the crest, coat-of-arms and epitaph of the knight.

No.

But certainly 20th century. Post WWII, probably.

Stunning! Too bad they all have tables blocking the view of the altar.

Tables which were never mandated by Vatican II, I'd like to add. I'm not aware of anything in any Council document which mandates the use of a free-standing altar.

What a wonderful thread.  Thank you, Vetus Ordo, Lumen Christi, and others...
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
