Title:The Macklin Bible -- Paul expelling the Evil Spirit from the Damsel of Philippi
Notes:The Macklin Bible is an enormous physical specimen of book art, comprising seven volumes two feet in height and over 130 pounds in weight. It is the apogee of the art of British copper-plate engraving, involving both painters and engravers. Artists first made a painting of their chosen biblical subject, and engravers then reproduced the painting as an engraving. These renowned artists often selected scripture texts that featured women, who were the nurturers of religious education for the family in late 18th century England.

A gift to Vanderbilt University from John J. and Anne Czura.
