New Videos: Basil of Caesarea; Bookstore; & Garden

Basil of Caesarea-Ohrid CathedralThis week I offer three new videos and one new podcast from the AIC’s digital library.

The first is Episode 17 in The Lives of the Saints – Second Series, a tribute to St. Basil of Caesarea, whose Feast Day in Jun 14.   The episode features illustrations generally unseen in the Western Church, including the beautiful blue and white themed icon of St. Basil celebrating Holy Communion, a 9th C. work from St. Sophia Cathedral, Ohrid, Macedonia.  The work is public domain.   St. Basil is primarily remembered for his contribution to the Church’s understanding of the equality of the Holy Spirit with God the Father and God the Son in the Holy Trinity.  The concept was incorporated into the Nicene Creed at the Council of Constantinople in 381 A.D., primarily owing to the work of his brother, St. Gregory of Nyssa and his friend St. Gregory Nazianzen.   The next episode, celebrating Its. Cyril and Methodius, whose Feast Day in Jul 11.

Watch Episode 17.                      Listen to Episode 17.

The second video is a new preview of the AIC Bookstore, using new software included with my new Mac computer.  The video includes the covers and glimpses of pages from the entire catalogue.  Since the content is primarily visual, there is no companion podcast.

Watch the Bookstore preview.

In my Weekly Update, which goes out to a selected group of interested recipients, I often write about my passion for gardening, especially with Petunias.  The third new video is a light-hearted picture and music video giving viewers a 3-minute look at my garden, focusing on the new varieties of petunia available for the first time this year, plus views of other plants and garden details.  Included this year are several new petunias offered for the first time in 2017:  Supertunias Latte, Really Red; Black Cherrt; and Honey; plus several amazing Surfinias which can trail up to 4′ down from the pot, including:  Heavenly Blue; Sky Blue; Blue-veined; Pink-Veined; Heartbeat; and the unique Crazytunia series:  Blueberry Cheesecake; Citrus Twist; Razzmatazz; & Bitter Lemon.   All flowers are identified with subtitles.
