Meditations on peace
This series of miniature art books by Sister Wendy Beckett is based around the universal themes of love, joy, silence and peace. Each one contains 20 paintings by famous artists, selected for their spiritual beauty. Every painting is accompanied by inspirational text, highlighting the religious power or sacred meaning within each work. The Gothic and Renaissance masters of sacred painting, such as Fra Angelico Raphael, and Giotto are all represented as well as more modern and contemporary painters, whose work often has a powerful religious message.
