O Happy Fault…

As you enter into the Chora Church in Istanbul, there is a door that will bring you to the side chapel that served as a mortuary chapel and among the frescoes that you will find there is the Anastasis, the Resurrection.  Christ, who had just broken down the gates of hell, is standing in the middle and pulling Adam and Eve out of their tombs.  It expresses the fulfilment of man’s hope, for immortality, and transcendence.  A Blessed Easter to everyone!

Resurrection of Christ
