The Psalter of Frederick II is outstanding.

I'd like a facsimile of that in colour to use !

It is another excellent example of how much unity in iconography existed between East and West in the 12th century.

I'll never forget a roman catholic priest telling me that "we don't use images like that here in the west, that's very byzantine".
(Showing me his icon bought on pilgrimage to jerusalem)
I admit there's a degree of truth to this, but historically the differences are very subtle.

If that's not unity, what is?

"and for all who are Orthodox, and who hold the Catholic and Apostolic Faith, remember, O Lord, thy servants" - yet the post-conciliar RC hierarchy is tolerant of everyone and everything... except Catholic Tradition, for modernists are as salt with no taste, to be “thrown out and trampled under foot
