Paintings on the wall for a thousand years (Explore)

An anchorite — apparently a woman called Myliana — was housed in a stone cell attached to the church from about 1250. It was not unusual for them to be bricked into the small cell so they stayed in solitude until they died in the cell. A squint was added at the same time to give her a view into the chancel towards the altar and to allow her to receive Communion. Another known occupant of the cell was Prior Robert, who died there in 1285. The squint was later blocked, but in about 1900 it was uncovered. Some lancet windows were added in the nave in the late 13th century, and in the 14th century the chancel received two new window openings.

Honolulu Chinese Church by toranosuke, on Flickr

Honolulu Chinese Church

I've passed this place by numerous times, kept meaning to come by with a camera, during the daylight, and finally got around to it.

A beautiful building, but still a church, and sadly disturbing in its evangelical attitude.

"Our island kingdom occupies a most advantageous outpost for carrying forward this noble undertaking of world evangelism...I am thoroughly convinced there is no place in the world so favorable for effectively reaching the Chinese with Christ's Gospel as in Honolulu..."

Really? Because in my book, a lack of respect for the religions, beliefs, and culture of others, and a fervor to destroy them because you believe your religion to be the only true answer, is an attitude that lies at the core of a great deal of historical destruction throughout the world. Perhaps you haven't heard of "live and let live" or of "to each their own."
