BURGOS: KINGS AND
BISHOPS UNDER THE SPECIAL PATRONAGE OF THE GREEN MAN
Burgos is a very lovely
city. As Pilgrim you should spend an extra day in order to taste its charm. Also because a
sansation is waiting for you. Next to the front portal of the Cathedral two times two men
can be spotted: one king and one bishop, each with a counselor. One would agree: this is
how a hierarchy looks like....Together these gentlemen constitute the highest authority.
And then this. Above the statues.....indeed a Green Man. I still cannot believe it....
Discoveries Note 10
Obviously, the sensation
is, that both king and bishop acknowledge, that the the Green Man is literally above them.
Through it they confirm their belief in a pre-christian Godhead while being guided by him.
The implications of ths image is limitless. All our paradigms are shattered. The Green Men
were venerated not only by common people, but in the highest circles, as well! Our
pastors/ministers didn't tell us anything about that....
How eagerly the aristocracy
identified itself with the Green Man is overly clearly demonstrated here

Green Men of all ages: Tree of "Eternal
Green Man with Mother Scallop
The surprise: left and
right of the entrance to the church shop a wonderful Green Man; right a equally wonderful
Wise Woman. Thank you, Burgos for the impartiality with regard to the Gren Man and the
Wise Woman! Thus pilgrims: Burgos is warmly recommended!
