Hello Friends,

I am looking for some resources that will boost my library with some good media pictures and illustrations. I currently have Logos 4 Silver, and whatever came with that. I often do searches looking for some good illustrations, art, or pictures (particularly those from antiquity) that relate to a passage, topic or person, but don't always find a very good amount. Any suggestions?

Hi Ben, sorry I didn't see your question until just today.

How are you doing your searches? That might be limiting the number of results you're getting. To search for pictures related to a passage, try the search syntax #image <Gen 22>   [or whatever passage it is you're interested in].

What sort of pictures are you looking for? Famous paintings? Logos unfortunately does not have many of those in their resources, so you might have to go elsewhere for those. A very fine website for finding biblical art on the Internet is the Art Concordance at The Text This Week. Another good one is Art and the Bible. Another is Art in the Christian Tradition.

Some of the magazines Logos used to sell have a number of good pictures in them. Namely Bible Review and Biblical Archaeologist, which came as part of the Ultimate Archaeology Collection that Logos no longer carries. You might be able to find it on some 3rd party website if you Google that phrase.
