Variations on Carravaggio's Doubting Thomas

Doubting Thomas by Caravaggio (click on image for larger version)

Contemporary rendering of Doubting Thomas, based on Caravaggio, found at The Crossroads Initiative

Another contemporary rendering of Caravaggio: Still Doubting by John Granville Gregory

If you haven't yet done your scripture homework in preparation for Mass this weekend, I hope these renderings of the Doubting Thomas might pique your interest and lead you to those
texts which, complete with background materials, can be found here.

And here's another one!

Doubting Thomas by Ben Steele

At the top of this post you saw 3 renderings of "Doubting Thomas," including Caravaggio and his imitators. The image here by Ben Steele takes us in another direction... or does it?  Steele's site is worth a visit for his take on art and how we view it. I'd apologize to fans of Kinkade but that would be disingenuous on my part: the visual pun in Steele's piece and title is too sweet to pass up! For some insightful commentary on all of this, check out Anneke Majors post at A Motley Vision.
