The Book of Judith is the ancient and inspiring story of a woman of valor, who single-handedly saves her small town from military take-over and religious oppression. From Botticelli to Klimt, great artists have painted and sculpted the story of Judith. We make history by celebrating Judith in a contemporary hand-illuminated golden manuscript for its museum debut in New York City.
The Book of Judith offers insight and hope to a worldwide audience of all ages and faiths for generations to come. Devoted to the transforming power of art The Book of Judith combines our exquisite paintings with text by Hebrew scholar Everett Fox. It chronicles the struggle for religious freedom in a contemporary voice while echoing the great illuminated manuscripts that flourished in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
