They really do. It's like he's looking right through us.

Nice trick of painting, I'd like him better if he didn't look like Putin.

Carthusians "rock" as I suppose you say in the states.

First printers in Sweden were Carthusians, first printed book in Swedish an instruction on the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Their press was confiscated by Gustav Wasa who gave it to Reformers.

And St Thomas More considered becoming Carthusian - but chose to be a faithful husband instead.
