Image removed[edit]

I removed the image of the Symmachi–Nicomachi diptych because it wasn't desecrated by Christians for being an "idol", as implied by the caption. That part of the Diptych was held in a monastery for centuries, being part of a reliquary, until the revolutionaries defaced it, burnt it and threw it into a well at the end of the XVIII century, because they couldn't tell it apart from images of kings they were destroying throughout northern France. 78.34.51.65 (talk) 11:37, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Scope.[edit]

It's only about religion, or broader? --Yomal Sidoroff-Biarmskii 12:24, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Bamiyan.[edit]

The destruction of Bamiyan Buddhas was not desecration, it was simply fundamentalism, because there were no Buddhists in Afghanistan at the moment. --Yomal Sidoroff-Biarmskii 12:27, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
