Hey ATS'ers, hope the searching for answers is progressing well and your quest for enlightenment is fruitful. Been doing a lot of random searching
these days in order to ease my boredom and I came across this amazing story which has me very intrigued, additionally if anyone has heard this before
and knows more, please add to the thread. I also made a connection with something I spotted a while back.
Now, first of all, there was a thread posted on ATS a few months back, by a guy trying (and failing imo) to debunk ancient UFO art. One of the
paintings that he used was this which was painted in the 15th century:
Now, one of my counter arguments was that this reminded me of a sailing vessel in the sky, I stand by that:
To throw something else into this mix, I stumbled across this amazing story from around 1200AD:
In 1211AD Gervase of Tilbury recorded a strange event in the borough of Clorea in Ireland. During a Sunday Mass at the church of St Kinarus in the
borough of Cloera, an anchor was seen to descend from the sky and hook on to the church door.
The parishioners watched as a man seemed to swim down to the anchor from a 'sky ship' to try and release it. The local Bishop stopped the people from
capturing him and he 'swam' back up to the ship, cut the rope and the ship sailed away. The anchor is said to have been kept within the church.
Apparently this story has been attributed to other places also:
The exact same story has been attributed to a number of other places including Gravesend in Kent, and Bristol in Somerset in the same year. It seems
unlikely that the same event would occur (you would think that the crew would have got wise to dropping anchor near churches). Other sources suggest
that the Cloera tale dates from 965AD and appeared in the 'Speculum Regale' which is a Norse-Irish collection of Icelandic saga. This tangled web of
information needs further research, but the story is remains intriguing.

Maybe all of this is coincidence, but I am convinced that whoever painted that painting seen a "sky ship" and was trying to convey it in their art. As
I said, maybe it's coincidence, but you can decide for yourself.
