Standing on the left side of the painting is one donor and Mary and on the left side St. John and the second donor. It was painted from a low viewpoint so we are looking up at Christ. Techniques that were used in the painting of Holy Trinity were 3D drawing and fresco. This artwork was created to appear as an illusion because there is space in the chapel and the painting is not just on a flat wall. This one point perspective recedes back into the space of the chapel.
The higher sky is a yellow-orange with hues of gold. The red, yellow, and orange shows the warmth in the painting. Whereas the paler blue sky at the bottom show a cooler temperature. The Assumption and Consecration of the Virgin is polychromatic with its variety of color. This painting is an example of iconography.
The use of the fresco technique when painting, usually produces a matte-like finish once it has dried, a trait that can be noted when analyzing Bondone’s painting, The Meeting of Joachim and Anna. On the other hand, Simone Martini’s painting, The Annunciation, shows the opposite finish of Bondone’s painting, because The Annunciation is considered to be very elegant, and includes a gold background, which enhances its brilliance. This is mainly because The Annunciation was painted in tempera and gold leaf on wooden panels, the opposite of a fresco painting. The use of tempera and gold leaf added immense sophistication and brilliance to Martini’s painting, something that Bondone’s painting was lacking. While Bondone’s painting has a matte finish which can be associated with the Florentine style of art, and Martini’s painting has more of an elegant finish,
Abraham’s bottom clothing now has lines of texture. The boy who has his arm around the horse clothing now changed color. Because the image is a lot darker, there are more shadows and it appears to be more contrast. The two men on the bottom right now are more muscular, including the bread man but that may be because of the new shadows the image has. The lightest place in the composition is in the middle of Abraham and Melchizedek.

What makes one be a good person? Natural Law is a concept that dates back to the Greco-Roman philosophers. The agreement by these philosophers was “that process in nature by which human beings, through the use of sound reason, were able to perceive what was morally right and wrong” (Schmidt 253). Cervantes’ Don Quixote struggles with this until the point of “madness”. In my opinion, Fielding’s Tom Jones human nature and morality, although seen as “unacceptable” at times relates to forgiveness in Christianity.
When comparing and contrasting the Catholic imagination and Protestant imagination in the films Field of Dreams, Stranger than Fiction, All That Jazz, and Dogma, the way God is represented and the elements these films utilize can help in determining what imagination each film is portraying. Field of Dreams and Stranger than Fiction represent the Protestant imagination and they do this by distancing the God figures from the main characters in these movies. The films All That Jazz and Dogma represent the Catholic imagination by making the God figures close to the main characters, as well as more sensual with the characters then the other movies.

I am aware of the gospels that we have which are Mark, Matthew, John, and Luke, but just like the manner of how God reveals himself in other religions outside Christianity, the other divisions of the gospels came across as a another shocker for me. Although I am aware of the Gnostic Gospel of Mary Magdalene, but that is merely because of the film The Da Vinci Code, and I did not really know the entire extent of the Gnostic Gospels, which further escalated my curiosity for this topic. Anyhow, I believe by having these kind of divisions for the Gospel is good, because it helps people know and understand the truth about our faith. The way I see it, if the Gnostic Gospels were not classified as it is then there would be disunity and confusion around us in our religion. If it were not for the Canonical Gospels, the official gospels of the bible as they were written out of devotional and evangelical purpose, no one would be then certain of what our faith is really about and who Jesus Christ truly is to us.
