The majesty of the logos

This is Giotto’s beautiful Ognissanto Madonna, originally painted for a Franciscan church in Florence. The Italian title of the painting is “La Maestà di Ognissanti”, pointing to the  the majestic quality of the logos or wisdom, giving birth to everything.

Johann Ritter v Herbeck, Pueri concinite
Pueri concinite, nato regi psallite!
Voce pia dicite: “apparuit quem genuit Maria.”
Sunt impleta quem predixit Gabriel.
Eja ! Eja ! Virgo Deum genuit quem divina voluit clementia.
Hodie apparuit in Israel.
Ex Maria virgine natus est Rex.


About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
