Via pulchritudinis

i took a workshop on illuminated letters a year or so ago.  I never produced anything as beautiful as this, but I appreciate the artistry even more now.


“Art, as the Catechism tells us, can communicate through beauty aspects of the truth that words alone cannot. In this posting Dr Caroline Farey of the School of the Annunciation, Buckfast Abbey, Devon, England describes why this image was chosen to exemplify and communicate the idea of the via pulchritudinis – the pathway of beauty that leads to Beauty itself, and which is itself beautiful.”  Read more about this image here.
