Monk by the Sea
by Caspar David Friedrich 1774-1840
You were tired out by the length of your road, Yet you did not say, ‘It is hopeless.’ You found renewed strength, Therefore you did not faint
Descent into Hell
by Dionysius and his workshop
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and giving life to those in the tomb.
THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, pg. 500
The Resurrection at Cookham
by Stanley Spencer 1891-1959
The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.
The Peaceable Kingdom
by Edward Hicks (1780-1849)
The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze, their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put its hand on the adder’s den. They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain; for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
The Creation of Adam
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.
