Excellent program, knowledgable and engaging moderator- fascinating to learn about the history and making of these beautiful painted churches.

The painted churches are certainly stunning, but I found this talk a little too specialised for someone, such as myself, new to both religious art and Romania. The first half was interesting, but the extensive detail on the paintings rather lost me in the second half. I would have liked to know more about the architecture, the interiors and the social and religious context...
However I'm sure that those who already know something about religious art would find it fascinating. And the photos/illustrations were beautiful!
We really enjoyed the talk - learned lots and afterwards continued to talk about it!
What fantastic monuments to the attempt by a Prince to build a bridge to another religion. More appropriate than ever.
