Catholic Line Art, Black and White • Installment #54
published 24 June 2014 by Cynthia Ostrowski

EFORE THE JOGUES MISSAL could be published, it was necessary to collect, scan, sort, clean, and carefully digitize more than 600 religious line art drawings. Credit for this goes to Kristen Ostrowski, who combed through hundreds of 19th century Missals, Antiphonals, Breviaries, and Graduals from a Benedictine Abbey, meticulously extracting pictures that were still intact.

Today’s installment was used as part of the Easter Vigil.   Click directly upon the image to download a high resolution version for your Church bulletin. Or, you can view the complete collection here.
