Today in Porn, Covington Church Edition

Well, not porn exactly. But lust, anyway. I really loved the apse painting in the St. Joseph’s Abbey church. And it was only after studying it for a good long while that I noticed the demons tucked in the recesses between the angels. Turns out they’re the seven deadly sins, plus Satan and the monk’s sin of murmuring.

Some were easier to decipher than others. I’m thinking this one is lust, seeing as how he is entangled. It reminds me of the unrest of Paolo and Francesca in the first circle of Dante’s hell. It was kind of a process of elimination.
