Lovely, Esther! I am adding this link to my Pauline Year page. Thanks!
There is much to be said of each individual's interpretation of St Paul's conversion - and each painting has a beauty all its own.Thanks, Esther! I hope you have a nice weekend.
Thank you for this beautiful Fine Art Friday. I enjoyed seeing all the wonderful representations of Paul by various artists.I am especially drawn to St. Paul writing his Epistles. I can just envision him pouring over this labor of love, sweat on the brow, inspired by the Holy Spirit....Also, love the Conversion by Caravaggio- it illustrates the real turning point in St. Paul's life and reminds us of a need for everyday an conversion that allows us to grow closer in the Lord.God Bless!
Wonderful Evann! Glad to be able to add to your Pauline resources.Veritas, so true! I think I like the Caravaggio one the best. How about you?Kathy, I don't know if you noticed but none of the depictions seem to portray St. Paul the way he is supposed to have been...short of stature, bald and a hooked nose...
