Art and film resources

An attempt to create a concordance of artworks relating to particular texts of the gospels has been undertaken on the Textweek site. A variety of art is presented, including black and white woodcuts, renaissance works, 19th century devotional art, some icons and examples of African mafa art. The depictions are by no means of equal artistic merit but the range and contrast offer teachers another way of introducing and speaking about particular extracts from the gospels.

The Textweek site also provides an annotated list of films which examine various themes suggested by scripture and could help teachers make connections between scripture study and life.

Art and the Bible, suggests ways in which we learn about scripture non-verbally. It contains many links worth exploring: to art, stained glass and clip art sites. A particularly good clip art site is Hermanoleon which provides images to match the readings of each Sunday of the Liturgical Year plus many connected with the sacraments and devotions of the Church.
