Can't find the message but someone said yesterday there is a 6th C
painting of the Last Supper with a tablecloth. Now I find this
confusing. Is this a symbolic reference to the Shroud of Turin? I do
find some Jewish references to a leather tablecloth and to clothes
covering food to keep the flies away but not to linen table coverings.
Does anyone have more data on the history of the tablecloth?
