Basilika Santa Chiara.... or light is everything

By bliba  
Basilika Santa Chiara /Assisi

Saint Clare of Assisi (16 July 1194 11 August 1253, born Chiara Offreduccio and sometimes spelled Clair, Claire, etc.) is an Italian saint and one of the first followers of Saint Francis of Assisi. She founded the Order of Poor Ladies, a monastic religious order for women in the Franciscan tradition, and wrote their Rule of Life,[1] the first set of monastic guidelines known to have been written by a woman. Following her death, the order she founded was renamed in her honour as the Order of Saint Clare, commonly referred to today as the Poor Clares. Her feast day is on 11 August.

It seems morbid but I like the sinister look of this image, Ollie.

As Nonur says, has a sinister feel to it Wink Especially the rope on the right, I thought initially it was a hangman's noose, but that's not the sort of thing you'd expect to find in a basilica! Smile

The temptation to take the difficult choice? Or an innocent bell rope?
