Credo de Atheos
Digital Print with Gold Leaf
Many of my frustrations come from contradictions throughout the Bible. In the Middle Ages, the Bible was only allowed to be published in Latin and was intimately hand-copied by monks where many passages were often changed or removed according to Papal ideals. This along with the common man’s illiteracy made the Bible cryptic so that the church could control the message of God and therefore control the people. I still feel like the message of the Bible is warped by various “interpretations” of the word over time and by different Christian denominations.
The writing here is a personal reflection on my feelings towards atheism and Christianity. The words become cryptic themselves by formally referencing religious illuminated manuscripts of the past.
