Postcard from Paris: The Musee de Cluny

Just returned from a visit to the Musee de Cluny in Paris -- about a block from our hotel -- and amongst all the wonderful medieval artifacts was this ancient reminder that the church has a LONG history of "mitregates."

No WONDER the kingdom hasn't come yet!
Oh well -- more later. Off for a walk along the Seine!

Any idea whom this is supposed to represent?

oops-- it is St. Denys -- his head was chopped off and he walked six miles while still preaching. Oy vey!
