For your contemplation...

Here's something to ponder on All Souls Day.  It's the great Doom Painting over the chancel arch in St. Thomas, Salisbury, England.  Painted in 1475, it was whitewashed at the time of the Anglican break with Rome, and then rediscovered and restored in the 19th century.  This is the largest such painting in England, and is in the parish church I often visited during my time as a student in Salisbury.
