The Blind Men and the Elephant, p. 2


This is one man’s depiction of his religious beliefs. It is the oldest known version of “Christ Pantocrator”, painted five or six hundred years after its subject had left this earth.

Looking at that conflict between different factions of the same religion from the vantage point of thirteen more centuries of smashing things and name-calling, I try to be as accommodating as can be of other people’s iconography, and as demure as can be with my own.

We might transliterate Pantocrator today as Master of the Universe; quite in contrast with this depiction…
