top site image Anno Domini: Jesus Through the Centuries
"In much of North America and Europe, the younger generations have little knowledge of the central figure in the formation of Western culture. They know little of the way Jesus, his person and teaching, and the way he has been understood, has shaped and reshaped so many key developments in art, science, politics, ideas, society, and culture. Anno Domini: Jesus Through the Centuries offers a modest opportunity to glimpse and consider this tap-root of culture and civilization." This site is an online exhibit of images of Jesus, related to Jaroslav Pelikan's works on changing historical perceptions of Christ. Maintained by the Provincial Museum of Alberta.

top site image William Blake Archive
"A free site on the World Wide Web since 1996, the Blake Archive was conceived as an international public resource that would provide unified access to major works of visual and literary art that are highly disparate, widely dispersed, and more and more often severely restricted as a result of their value, rarity, and extreme fragility. The Archive contains fully searchable and scalable electronic editions of copies of Blake's illuminated works in the context of full, up-to-date bibliographic information about each image, scrupulous 'diplomatic' transcriptions of all texts, detailed descriptions of all images, and extensive bibliographies."

To coordinate the activities of individuals and groups in Asian region who are working on indigenous art forms. 3. To provide a means of communication and information. 4. To work with churches, with the Christian Conferences of Asia and with other bodies seeking to witness to Christian faith in Asia."

web Society for the Arts, Religion, and Contemporary Culture
"The Society's purpose and program are based on the belief that the roles of the arts and religion are decisive. They reflect the struggle to conserve and to recover depth and wholeness, to reaffirm personal responsibility in the face of dehumanization, to define the ground for human freedom and creativity in a culture which tends increasingly to impose impersonal tyrannies over mind and spirit. The Society meets three times each year, normally in New York City, on the first Saturday of November, February and May."
