    1. I think he changed religion for everyone. And he also made big changes on society in general. Like that everyone should've taught to read so they could study the bible and that not only rich people matter.

  4. The fabric is in fairly good condition considering its age.

  5. He had a great impact on the cultural and religious life. Married a nun, re-wrote the bible and lived quite a jolly life.
    Love the colour of the robe and the beautiful embroidery.

  7. Gorgeous embroidery. It's amazing that it's so well preserved. Textiles don't seem to have a long, long life.
