Albanian church frescoes vandalized
« on: January 16, 2013, 07:16:15 PM »
In Vlash, Albania, frescoes in the Church of St. Paraskevi were damaged in acts of vandalism.

From the article:
Quote
The historic church was vandalized twice, on Dec. 31 and Jan. 4, Kadija said. It was unclear why the damage was not reported earlier.

Art historian Auron Tare called the destruction of the frescoes a "most serious crime."

Lord Have Mercy!
What a tragedy.
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!
