Spend 90 seconds taking in the Joshua Anthology in this brief video of the illumination. It’s a different rendering for those of us who perhaps grew up singing “Joshua fit the battle of Jericho…and the walls came-a tumbling down.” Do you see the Ten Commandments used as battle flags in this imagining?. One of the artistic team’s favorite strategies was to combine elements from other illuminations in their art, linking the ideas in this way.
