St. Valerius (Weyarn, Germany) from Empire of Death

When: Saturday 9/24 7 – 10 pm
Where: La Luz de Jesus, 4633 Hollywood Blvd.
Price: Free! The book is $50 and worth every penny.
Info: Dr. Paul Koudounaris presents and signs his new book, The Empire of Death: A Cultural History of Ossuaries and Charnel Houses. The book reveals religious places where human remains were laid to rest en masse on four continents. The word “amazing” has been over-used in our society. However, “amazing” is the right word to describe the power of Dr. Paul K’s photographs of the bone churches, jewel-encrusted skeletons and decorated skulls. I can’t wait to read the book and learn more about the stories and cultures behind the gorgeous images. Original photographs will be on display at La Luz de Jesus until October 3rd. Learn more at La Luz de Jesus and see a sample of what will be on display. The official publisher site has full pages to view. If you are out of town, you can pre-order the book on Amazon. Highly recommended.
