EFORE THE CAMPION MISSAL could be published, it was necessary to collect, scan, sort, clean, and carefully digitize more than 300 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 and extracted the pictures which had survived intact.
The St. Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal for the Traditional Latin Mass (ccwatershed.org/Campion) contains approximately ninety (90) of these exquisite “woodcuts.” In my Blog entries over the next year or so, I will be releasing hundreds of these pictures for general use by Catholics everywhere.
The following piece of line art was used for the Feast of the Epiphany in the Campion Missal:
Traditionally, the Feast of the Epiphany celebrated three events: (1) The visit of the Magi; (2) Our Lord’s first Miracle at Cana; and (3) The Baptism of the Lord at the River Jordan. The above picture focuses on the visit of the Magi, but we will also be releasing Epiphany drawings that stress all three events.
