Yes I’ve seen your link.Very interesting. Most depictions of St.Maurice in mediveal art is as a black man. He and the Thebean Legion were soldiers who refused to make sacrifices to Jupiter and the emperor of Rome, and so were martyered. The romans were all over the place and most certainly have brough people of other skin colors with them into Europe. St. Martin of Tours was from Pannonia, which is modern Hungary, which means he was a magyar like me, since my mother was hungarian. He’s a white man , but both of us could have asiatic blood as well when you think of Genghis Khan and his horde invading various countries.Cool
