Product Details
This year's Ordo Kalendar features the art of Gustav Doré. Like earlier engravers such as Albrecht Dürer and William Blake, Doré found inspiration in religious subjects and his illustrations are infused with the sense of romantic historicism that was characteristic of establishment art in the mid to late nineteenth century.

With over two hundred engravings of subjects ranging from the Flood to the Second Coming, Doré’s 1866 editions of the Vulgate (published in France) and King James Bible (published in England) became immediate best sellers in Europe and America. Though Doré is not as well known now as he was at the time of his death in 1883, his illustrations have continued to shape the visual perception of scripture among Christians in the West, and are likely to do so for generations to come.

The images in this kalendar focus specifically on the Life of Christ and were selected to coincide with Gospel readings from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and Anglican Missal.
