Another Word On Ramon Llull

Ramon Llull (Raymond Lully) is to Catalan written works what Shakespeare is to English, Dante to Italian, and Goethe to German literature. Llull zealously dedicated his writings to an idealistic cause, the peaceful conversion of Muslims and Jews to Christianity through logic and reason. To this end, he elaborated distinct, beautiful, and irrefutable philosophical ideas. He could write equally well in Latin, Catalan or Arabic. Llull petitioned to have the Monasterio de Miramar between Valldemossa and Deià established in 1276 as a missionary academy teaching Arabic and Catalan to Mallorcan monks, preparing them in their endeavours to convert Moors to the Catholic faith.

Ramon Llull’s tomb in Palma’s Església de Sant Francesc is illuminated by an impressive stained glass window adorned with the Llullian crest of arms, the single half moon (see photo).

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 13th, 2010. The time was 10:39:10.
