The altar rests beneath a magnificent civory or ciborium, the vault of which is covered with golden mosaic tiles. The apse walls are treated with inlaid marblework and murals painted in the Beuronese school of sacred art. Equally magnificent is the Cosmatesque floor of the sanctuary.
The charming photograph adjacent was taken in the Abbey Church of Saint Andrew in Bruges,
Belgium around 1960. A Benedictine monk is pictured at the beginning of a Low Mass, attended by two servers.
A more detailed description of the Church, with photographs, will be the subject of further posts.
