In the "I must decrease" department, may I refer you to these excellent remarks by Daniel Siedell on theology and art. He ends with the need to understand the 7th ecumenical council. What I fine idea. So, greetings from the land of Orthodoxy (Christendom's second lung), specifically Serbia, from where I write. Studying Byzantine art history has its rewards.
Belgrade was amazing. Made me want to protest the war (Clinton's war that is). And incidentally, it is possible to go see the Duomo in Milan on a layover. Sporadic updates to come.
