"Scripture for the Eyes:
Bible Illustrations in Netherlandish Prints
of the Sixteenth Century"

A collection of 16th century Bible illustrations from Dutch and Flemish masters, consisting of approximately 80 engravings and woodcuts

The exhibit explores the ways in which printed illustrations of Biblical and other religious themes supplemented and magnified the texts they accompanied during a period of dramatic religious and political upheaval. Illustrations are on loan from 13 institutions, including the British Museum and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, in addition to five rare volumes of the Antwerp Polyglot Bible contributed by Emory's Pitts Theology Library.
