Today is celebrated worldwide as the Feast of the Transfiguration of Christ on Mount Tabor in the Holy Land, present site of the Church of the Transfiguration, containing the mosaic shown above.
The event, described in Matthew 17, has directly inspired much Christian art, like this painting by Carl Heinrich Bloch.
It is said to have indirectly inspired other work, as well, like this painting by Albert Bierstadt and a key moment in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
- Psalm 68:4-5“Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.”
- Psalm 68:4-5
