the height of christ
the height of christ
A label, affixed after I took this photo in 2005, now explains that this table is the mensura Christi, the height of Christ. (For the record: about six feet.) However, that's probably a later legendary accretion, something to satisfy the visiting pilgrim. This table was once the pope's "high table" (literally) in the ninth-century aula concilii or Council Hall built by Leo III, which, despite its name, was actually a dining hall, though it was so huge it could also host church councils. When the hall was demolished at the order of Sixtus V in the 1580s to build the new Lateran palace, it was moved elsewhere and finally ended up in this cloister, where it had gone from being a mensa or dining table to being a mensura or measure (of Christ), an example of a changing meaning following the misunderstanding of a word. It's interesting enough as a sort of medieval idea of the height of Jesus, but I like it as a dining table, a relic of a medieval Roman copying of a Byzantine imperial dining habit, and thus a papal assertion of imperial authority. All this from a table.
roasted tomatoes, fragrant and tasty
roasted tomatoes, fragrant and tasty
Marvelous! Richard cooked them with plenty of basil and fresh mashed garlic, and then dribbled olive oil everywhere. The tomatoes ended up sweet, from their own sugar...much like fruit. (Well, they are fruits after all.) So we took this platter to the local tomato festival near Owens Field...a big crowd. We were told to take it into the main building, along with the rest of he food that the crowd had brought. It was a big pot-luck, covered-dish affair for those inclined to eat. Well, as soon as we entered the crowded "dining hall", people started looking up at the platter, and making movements toward Richard. It was like a shark feeding frenzy. Richard put it down on the end of the table, too off the Saran wrap, and had to get out of the way! The locusts descended upon the offering, and within minutes, as if by magic, it was all gone, consumed utterly!!
