Christian Iconography

Resources for the study of subjects and themes in Christian art

The Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature

The Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature in the Connelly Library’s Department of Special Collections is comprised of over one thousand pieces; from illuminated manuscripts of the Renaissance to modern fine-press publications.

An early vision for the Collection, which began as a memorial collection in La Salle’s University Art Museum in 1978, was to use the Collection as a resource for the study of religious art; developing a rich resource of representations of central biblical accounts from different periods in the history of Western man since the Renaissance. Today, the Collection affords us countless illustrations to study and enjoy.
