What is the link between this building and Michelangelo?
Who was Bartholomeus?
Bartholomew was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus. Not much is known about Bartholomew's life. He travelled through Persia, India and Armenia...
He also travelled to a small coastal town on the west coast of the Caspian Sea.
It did not end well
Michelangelo recorded it in paint. On his fresco The Last Judgement we see how Bartholomew was skinned alive for spreading the word of Christ.
