Picturing Mary

BVM H/T to Brother John

Hawaii wasn't on the list for showing. Hopefully, you will find it showing in your area.


Picturing Mary is a stunning new, high-definition documentary to debut December 2006 on public television. It explores how images of the Virgin Mary reflect numerous traditions, devotional practices, and cultures. The one-hour program leads viewers on a pictorial journey through history from earliest Christian times to the present day. It presents a fascinating array of art from twelve locations in eight different countries.

The documentary is a joint effort of the United States conference of Catholic Bishops’ Catholic Communication Campaign and New York Public Television station Thirteen/WNET. The program is narrated by actress Jane Seymour and features quotations read by actor James Keach.
