Good Friday

Giotto di Bondone, Crucifixion (c.1320-25)

“We needed an Incarnate God, a God put to death, that we might live… A few drops of Blood recreate the whole world…”

— Gregory of Nazianzus, Oration 45.28, 29 

Cimabue, “Santa Trinita Madonna”

I don’t usually post art, but this is absolutely haunting. It’s their faces; the painting is still an icon:

Cimabue, Santa Trinita Madonna (c.1280-85)
