Sanctuary is way cluttered in that second pic!  :O

V2 council fathers would freak out at that pic. :D

They would have been 'triggered.'

Is that the women's traditional dress or are they religious?
"Begin again." -St. Teresa of Avila

“My present trial seems to me a somewhat painful one, and I have the humiliation of knowing how badly I bore it at first. I now want to accept and to carry this little cross joyfully, to carry it silently, with a smile in my heart and on my lips, in union with the Cross of Christ. My God, blessed be Thou; accept from me each day the embarrassment, inconvenience, and pain this misery causes me. May it become a prayer and an act of reparation." -Elisabeth Leseur

It was the traditional dress in Bethlehem for Muslim and Christian women, I believe.

The castle surrounding the medieval Serbian monastery Manasija located in central Serbia, built in the 15th century between 1406 and 1418 as an endowment of Serbian ruler Stefan Lazarević.

The castle consists of 11 towers, strong defensive walls and a gate. It was built as a defense against the invading Ottoman Turks. Inside the complex, archaeologists have discovered remains of many medieval buildings with numerous valuable findings, including medieval pottery, stone decorations and objects for everyday use. The monastery is famous for its beautiful frescoes and manuscripts, and in the 15th century it allegedly had a library with more than 20 000 books.

Nice, wouldnt mind being a fisherman in that town. With a house somewhere on the outskirts, many children, faithful wife, many relatives that live nearby if not in the same house. Lots of spinach  ::)... growing in the backyard. Not even a hippie could dream up a more ecological lifestyle.

Dont know if its a Catholic state, but if it is then I dont need to travel with my horse and cart 2 hours for my TLM.

Constantinople is now Istanbul.  There are still five Catholic Churches in Istanbul.  Although most of your neighbours would be Muslim.

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

I’m guessing that the image that Vetus posted predates the Islamic conquest of Byzantium and perhaps also the schism between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches. Even so, you would not generally have had access to a Tridentine mass, but rather the Divine Liturgy, unless of course you traveled outside of the city walls to the Genoese or Venetian colonies.

The Umayyad Mosque, previously the Cathedral of Damascus. When John Damascene was still a minister of the Caliph, the latter converted the Cathedral into a Mosque around the year AD 710 and just before the great assault on Constantinople some years later. This action might have caused the resignation of John Damascene and his retreat into the monastery of Saint Sabbas near Jerusalem.
