There was an army of priests there, all reading the guide book and listening to the audioguide rather than looking at the paintings. Everyone in their own bubble, happily stepping in front of other people's view because the headphones told them to. It was so annoying. You'd think that if you wanted to have some kind of experience of sacred beauty or to be able to empathise with Christ's suffering, you wouldn't want to do it through the filter of someone's opinion in your ear or in a book.
Oh, hang on.
