The Reformation of Wolfshausen
To hear Wilhelm Monteverdi's sermon, click on Elijah's miracle at right.
Or, if you're feeling more contemplative, you can read this week's episode by joining Elijah and the Israelites at lynching.
Poor ole Elijah, never got a kiss.
That Wilhelm! This is heady stuff!
BTW, is that Ahab guy the one with the bum leg?
Everytime I start to listen to these wonderful readings, I google a Bavarian town and follow the links for the people who've visited there.
Moses and the Israelites... some great art around about them.
I'm with SK, though I'm more lost there in a dream...at the tavern suffering the warm ale I know I'd be drinking.
Cheers, Cooper. Let me get a round.
Always my kind of bedtime story.
Thanks, Actonbell. Cheers.
I'm glad, Nessa.
