Worth A Thousand Words: The Calling of Samuel

"Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." (1 Sam 3:10)

From The Crusader Bible,  fol. 20v (13th c.), The Morgan Library & Museum

I had a chance to see this manuscript in person over Christmas vacation. It is stunning. Just imagine a graphic novel, then transport it to the Middle Ages. Check out the rest here. 

Where have I been the past few months? Well, mostly over here, chronicling my marathon training adventures. I'll be settling back into my normal bookish musings soon.
