Das war wohl schon zu "ausgelutscht" und einfach, ausserdem wollte man bestimmt keiner Gruppierung auf die Füsse treten...schon mal aufgefallen, dass Chris Carters Geburtstag, der 13.10., was ja auch gleichzeitig der Name seiner Firma ist, "TenThirteen", zusammenaddiert, also 13 und 10, die Zahl 23 ergeben? *zwinker*
Die Verhaftungswelle gegen den Templar Orden began an einem 13.10
Anamnesis is one of my favourite episodes. I rewatch it usually on the 22nd of July as this is the feast day of St Mary of Magdalene.
And I just realised today that in the episode they say that that Clare was born on July 22nd - which is the feast day of St. Mary of Magdalene - I am completely amazed to pick this only up now after so many years and rewatches.
"LARA: Arrived July 2nd, 1982."
Though in the script it says 2nd of July - might the admin perhaps check - perhaps I just mishear it - and if applicable fix that in the script?
Perhaps also adding those factoid as a reference there:
This episode made me reading the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, Narnia, most of the Pullman books, Elaine Pagel's the Gnostic Gospels etc and also how I picked my nick for the internet in the late 90's.
Some related Music to the topic 😉
Germanic Christmas traditons
I found the series on NowTv and I love it - also ordered the DVDs 🙂
Switzerland - Guggala Pass
Oh I hope that will be on Netflix or Amazon Prime - looks really really good 🙂
Thanks for sharing
"Peering in our skies it is believed to be the prophecy of extraordinary events...
... the birth of Kings,
... the death of Empires,"
Perhaps announcing the death of the British Empire due to Brexit? 🤔
Thank you! will also definitely order the CDs
I found meanwhile the answer to the painting question - hidden on the web page
Adoration of the Magi - by Giotto di Bondone
I would suggest that the Episode guide page 😉

Hope it will arrive before Christmas 🙂
@SadEyes do you know perhaps where I can find the background music to the "Life of a Comet" intro?
https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2018/12/04/comet-46-p-wirtanen-zoom-across-night-sky-next-week/2205179002/ - this years "Star of Bethlehem"
led me back to Episode "the Beginning and the End" and its intro - https://millennium-thisiswhoweare.net/downloads/audio/life-of-a-comet-the-beginning-and-the-end - the Life of a Comet
The intro has two art pieces - one is the Nativity - the second one was easy identifiable for me as the Bayeux Tapestry https://www.precinemahistory.net/bayeux.htm
Can anyone identify though the Nativity scene painting?
Moreover has anyone an idea where I can find background music of "the Life of a Comet" intro?
Some interpretation/ coincidence from my side on the Intro - it starts with "In Number, there is one for every life which ever was..."
Numbers 24:17 reads: "I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth."
Thanks - Millennium was one of my favorite series during my time as a teenager.
I tried to search the picture via TinEye as well but no result showed up - possibly as well because of the quality and the angle in the end.
Many paintings are without a copyright - so I am not sure of its origin.
Tried as well to find below picture at the entry of Peters study room - but also with no results.
Thank you for Jack O' Lantern/Battery/790 Days" !!!
first thank you for identifying the pictures here
There is a second page from the Book of Hours hanging over the fire which is obscured by a vase. I am pretty sure that that page hanging there is April https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Les_Très_Riches_Heures_du_duc_de_Berry_avril.jpg
As you can see the building vaguely on the right and in one shot vaguely the man in the blue garment.
The choice of April could be interpreted in a way as there are theories out there that Jesus was born in April and Peter is stating that the day Jesus was born is unknown.
From the Article:
Then Peter stands in front of the fireplace for a while, and he probably gazes at Nativity when he says "Imagine that: Christ wasn't even born on this day, maybe not even 1,997 years ago. So no one knows for sure when the millennium really begins and ends. Or how much time is left."
A possibility is that Peter is gazing on both pictures - the Nativity painting and on the April Calendar painting.
Was anyone able to identify so far the yellow (wheat?) field painting:
And the painting when Frank is entering Peter's study room?

Not a Comet - but still interesting:
