Owlseyes inside Notre Dame, it's so strange a 15-hour blaze and... And there are so many ("legends").... No, Azazel is not one more distortion or invention of Saramago out of Biblical content; I checked myself about the Tall Cherub: he's referred to in Gustav Davidson's dictionary; if you add to it the "other legend": that Lucifer fell from Heaven..... with 1/3 of the angels....then you get a more plausible picture.

Better Eggs I know quite a bit about Jewish legends, but never heard that one. Lots I don't know.

Kalliope This seems a sort of companion to hisO Evangelho Segundo Jesus Cristo.

Beautifully illustrated!

Owlseyes inside Notre Dame, it's so strange a 15-hour blaze and... Thanks.
-Companion?
Maybe, never dared reading it; Saramago usually messes up with [read: distorts] biblical content. Some day, maybe.
-Have you read it?
