Women Saints in Christian Art

Here at the Disseminary, we are excited but a sudden possibility of a new seminar on Women Saints and Christian Art. The final plans are being put into place for Paula Barker to offer what should be an engaging and illuminating seminar on Women Saints in Christian Art. If you would be interested in participating in this seminar email Trevor. More news will follow soon and the seminar should begin in the first week of January.

Theology Cards

We’ll be posting an entire series of theology cards oriented toward Early Church History. The first, a sample card for St. Anthony of the Desert, is ready now; more will appear as soon as we can prepare them.

We’ll post Theology Cards in three formats: a single-card PDF, with verso and recto side-by side (suitable for saving to your computer for amusement, or printing onto a 5 ×8 index card); a six-up, two-page layout, suitable for printing in mass quantities; and a humble JPEG.

Here’s some colophon information. The drawings come to us from Stephen Lahey; for the present 0.9 release, they remain in his back-and-white format, but we’ll colorize them for 1.0 release. The titling face for Greek Fathers (and Mothers) and for topics of pertinence to the Eastern church will be Corrodet Caps, a freeware typeface executed by Manfred Klein. For Latin saints, we’ll use CapitalisTypOasis, another Klein typeface. [Whoops! Capitalis doesn’t have Arabic numerals, so I’m borrowing them from Jay Vidheecharoen’s Memento Mori.] The text face on the recto is Gill Sans, at least for now (the Disseminary hasn’t bought a sans-serif face of its own at this point). The Theology Cards will be covered by the Disseminary’s Creative Commons license: attribution, non-commerical, no-derivs.

So herewith are the Theology Cards, in the order in which we prepare them:

  1. St. Anthony of the Desert, Single PDFSix-Up PDFJPEG

  2. Perpetua and Felicitas, Single PDFSix-Up PDFJPEG

  3. Irenaeus, Single PDFSix-Up PDFJPEG

  4. Tertullian, Single PDFSix-Up PDFJPEG

  5. Athanasius, Single PDFSix-Up PDFJPEG
