Guilty! I broke the rule....oh well

St Procopius Basilica in Třebíč built in 1230. It is a triple-choired, three-aisled basilica . Beneath the east end and the presbytery, there is a crypt with pointed rib vaults. The basilica is built from granite and sandstone. It is a magic place with a very special atmosphere….

and it is FORBIDDEN to take pictures there….I really did not intend to break the rule…but happened…

Don't beat yourself up. Some rules were meant to be broken. These shots are worth breaking a rule for.

Well, I'm glad you did it, it is a fantastic building and probably I never will have the opportunity to see it otherwise.

I'm glad you did. I may never get to see T?ebíč in real life, but at least I can admire the architecture at a distance. 3 and 4 are especially good. I'm glad I could see that roof.

It saddens me that church authorities are so precious about their buildings, when in fact the majority of the labour was done buy ordinary people frequently under horrible conditions at a time when you might have been burned as a witch for suggesting that a little black box was capable of capturing images. The labours of those people should be free to view by everyone, whether they have the time/money to travel or not.

Thank you for posting.

On of the May '68 sayings you might find useful right now: "il est interdit d'interdire".

Anyway, it's probably more of a guideline...
