Mitsui - St Galgano

Speaking of the strange, the secret, and the sure-to-be- misinterpreted by the likes of Dan Brown, Daniel Mitsui presents the abbey ruinous of Saint Galgano. In the 12the century, the knight saw the Archangel Michael, renounced his dissipated life, and became a hermit. The ruinous abbey once built around his sword which he plunged into a boulder still stands. As does the sword in the stone. More here. And here.

The photographer of that picture objected to my using it on my website. You may wish to change it on yours as well.

No need to approve this comment.

Thank you, Daniel. As you can see, I removed the original photo. Best
