Detail Photos of the Holy Spirit in the Mosaic of the Annunciation at Mount Angel Seminary

by Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB

A large mosaic of the Annunciation, which is located in one of the main buildings of Mount Angel Seminary, is the focus of two assignments in my writing course for students in college one.  These photos illustrate the details of the top of the mosaic that depicts the Holy Spirit.  The mosaic is based on an icon written through the hand of Br. Claude Lane.

Incarnate Beauty also contains detail photos of the Archangel Gabriel and the Mother of God in this mosaic.

The title of the mosaic and the Holy Spirit atop the book of the Gospels.
