I am seeking recommendations for a good Chinese language school which holds online classes (via skype or another video platform) at an affordable price. The recommendation is for a beginner learner. If you have any tips for online Chinese classes, please email me off-thread at email@example.com.

Thanks very much for the leads.
Your question immediately brought to mind the episode in Catalina de Erauso's autobiography, when she seeks sanctuary in a church in La Paz after murdering a man. The following might be a good entry point: Victor M. Uribe-Uran, "Iglesia Me Llamo": Church Asylum and the Law in Spain and Colonial Spanish America," Comparative Studies in Society and History Vol. 49, No. 2 (Apr., 2007), pp. 446-472.
I am looking for work on religious sanctuary in Spain, for any era but preferably in the early modern period, up to the nineteenth century Desamortizaciones.
By sanctuary, I mean the practice of criminals and others, such as debtors, seeking refuge from legal authorities through recourse to entering religious spaces.
Works in English very much appreciated, but happy to receive spanish language suggestions, whether source texts or current scholarship.
Recently, I came across references of a Sanskrit text Saklādhikāra by Agastya. He seems to be the first author to systematise the practice of image making in South India. I am particularly interested to know more about this text, any scholarly work on its history and English translation of this work.
