(Reviews - 10) Microsoft Word Printer ePub eBook
Story notes: Inspiration: This fic was inspired by a visit to the Petit Palais in Paris, where I saw an exhibit on Byzantine monasteries in Mt. Athos. Elements reminiscent of The Sandman’s Corinthian and of the graphic novel Le Troisieme Testament can also be found.

Warnings: Violence, blood, death. Don’t read if you can’t stand them! The religious references to Judas’ testament are PURELY FICTIONAL. If you do not like fiction based on religious facts (i.e. the Da Vinci Code), you probably shouldn’t read this.
