Getty Museum Art Books for FREEEEEE
« on: April 03, 2014, 10:21:46 PM »
At least a few jumped out at me as being of interest:


The Armenian Gospels of Gladzor: The Life of Christ Illuminated

Treasures from the Ark: 1700 Years of Armenian Christian Art



They had pages and pages of art books, as well as conservancy handbooks, research etc.

Enjoy!

If you will, you can become all flame.

Thanks for having the brains left to post this interesting thread.
I got several of their booklets on icons free online. The pictures were priceless.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
