How did medieval monks create illuminated manuscripts? What's behind the symbolism in all their visual elements? Why were they an important part of the monk's life and work? What do they have to do with my prayer life and understanding of sacred music now? Find out the answers to these and other questions in this episode with Mrs. Elizabeth Lemme of Pelican Printery House as she shares with us a little bit about her own growth in faith through this artistic medium, as well as her expertise in all their details.
