One day we drove north through the Morvan to the hilltop village of Vezelay, started by Benedictines about 1000 years ago. (Here’s the French Wikipedia ref.) The abbey is famous for having a relic (looks like a rib) from Mary Magdalene which we found in a gilded receptacle in the crypt. In this slideshow, I focused on the capitals of the columns in the basilica since each is unique and seems to tell a story.

Awesome – is there a story book to go along with the columns?
Probably, but I don’t know, and even a little research didn’t help. Some are new, some are old, but I’ll keep diggin’…
lovely pics randall.
Great job with the columns! 🙂
