Episode Seven in the AIC’s newest Seasonal Video series is now available in both video and podcast versions. The subjects are the Collect, Epistle and Gospel readings for Sixthteenth through Nineteenth Sundays after Trinity, which includes four more writings from the Pauline Epistles and two pericopes each from the Gospels of St. Luke (Raising of the Son of the Widow of Nain; Healing of the Blind Man with dropsy; and the Parable of the Chief Seats) and St. Matthew (The Greatest Commandment question and the Healing of Palsied Man).
The episode includes 13 illustrations (not counting repeat uses) from the 6th C. through the early 20th C. I’ve added more images to our archive of St. Paul but also found another image of St. Matthew, whose images are quite hard to find. This one is from a Russian Gospel book produced in the last quarter of the 15th C., showing St. Matthew composing his Gospel. The colors, textures and tones are exceptional. The work is credited to a monk, Michael Medovartsev. It comes from the Egerton MSS 3045, Folio 10v from the Byzantine illuminated manuscripts collection at the British Library, London, England.
One of the changes made during this series is better correction of what is said and presented in each episode with similar work in the AIC archive of videos, podcast and publications. Each episode closes with a short review of source, date, episode or page number of our Bookstore publications, Seasonal and Christian Education video, and Bible Study videos. I hope viewers find the information useful.
The script, slides and sound for Episode Eight and Episode Nine, the final episode, are complete. The work that remains is coordination of the sound to the pictures. I hope to complete that work during the next two weeks.
The next work in the series is Advent: A Season of Penitence and Preparation, which will premier in late September or early October. The format will be the same as the other Seasonal Videos based on the seasons in the Church Year. Content will incorporate some material available in existing AIC videos and books.
