The Art of the Bible

Kathleen Doyle and Scot McKendrick have come together to produce a divine art collection in The Art of the Bible. It includes some of the worlds rarely seen in medieval European paintings, that are so beautiful that galleries would fall over themselves if it weren't that the images were inside illuminated Bibles. The skill and craftsmanship are heavenly. The light and ambiance draw you into the scenes captured.
