I hope you're enjoying my posts about religious images from various Churches at least half as much as I'm enjoying posting them. The Coptic, Ethiopic and Armenian Churches each have their own spoken and written language (Coptic, Ethiopic and Armenian, respectively), and I think you can see a distinct visual language in each case as well.

(Can a post about Syriac Christian images be far off?)
