This is an ancient tale of visual worship. In the premodern era, young artists known as “illuminators” would work alongside the priests and scribes in the monastery to decorate the holy scriptures with brilliantly detailed images, known as “illuminations.” To be an illuminator was one of the highest callings of an artist in that day.

Preface I’ve been dreaming a lot about the Church & Her artisans. About creators, like me & like many of you, who serve the Church faithfully. Who have a passion for the “liturgical arts.” But I’ve also had a growing dream for the many artists who are in the Church but who are not wired […]
