Product Description

Details

SOLD OUT FOR 2019 SEASON

Miracle of Spirit Christmas boxed cards. Mosaic of the Birth of Christ from the Monastery chapel of the Benedictine Sisters, Clyde, Missouri. The Beuronese school of art, developed at the Abbey of Beuron in Germany during the later part of the nineteenth century, sought a more dignified alternative to the romantic emotionalism that dominated religious art of the day. Incorporating such diverse influences as the hieratic otherworldliness of Orthodox iconography and the geometric precision of ancient Egyptian mural paintings, the Beuronese style imparted a renewed sense of transcendence to church art, making it a medium by which the observer might contemplate holy truths without distractions from the medium itself. It was not art for its own sake, but art for a higher purpose.

Inside Text:
Rejoice! Unto us is born a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

20 Cards and Envelopes
Size: 4.365" x 6"
