Lunch Break

October 10, 2009

What’s not generally known about this is that it’s based on an actual historical incident! But the artist was Paolo Veronese, and he appeared before the Inquisition. They did object to extraneous elements in his “Last Supper” and advised him to change them. And he really did just rename it (to “Feast in the House of Levi”)!

Please give my name as Jim C.

    It would only be a flush wound, Mark!

    Kind of funny. I have to point out that clips like these, and Monty Python generally, encourage ridicule and in some cases attacks on the Catholic Church and the Pope. As a practicing Catholic I often find it necessary to defend the Church against MP’s scurrilous attacks. It’s disappointing to see it here.
