A Clifford calculus on sections of a Clifford bundle associated with a (pseudo-) Riemannian metric is reviewed. Its use is illustrated by reference to the Einstein — Yang — Mills equations. The formalism highlights the difference between the Kähler and Dirac equations and their separability in a curved space-time is discussed. Some aspects of supersymmetric models are outlined.
