I hope you enjoy this collection of HD wallpapers depicting the life of Jesus Christ. I’ve made them available as a Windows 7 (see note below) and Windows 8 Themepack, as well as a zip file for use on other systems (such as Linux, Mac, etc).
If you have any sources for high resolution images of the life of our Savior, or if you would just like to say thanks, please leave a comment!
Note for Windows 7 Users
Windows 8 creates a
.deskthemepack file, which Windows 7 cannot open. If you would like to use these wallpapers on Windows 7, you can download the zip file and create a theme yourself, or you can use this simple utility to install the
.deskthemepack on Windows 7.
- May-15: I discovered a bunch of new pieces that I love while I was searching for more Gospel artwork for my Every 6 project, including many by Henry Ossawa Tanner and my long-time favorite Carl Bloch.
- Oct-14: I updated some of the low-resolution or cropped images and addedsome images from the LDS Gospel Media Library.
- Apr-14: I found a higher resolution, uncropped image of Franz Schwarz’s Agony in the Garden.
- Jan-14: Inspired by a recent viewing of Brigham Young University’s Sacred Gifts exhibit, I added 21 more images (now totaling 55) and updated some of the older images. Some of the additions were found at the Statens Museum for Kunst online gallery, as well as from BYU Religious Studies Center Behold the Lamb of God Exhibit.
- Oct-13: I added six more high resolution images (for a total of 34). Many of them were found on the National Gallery of Art website, which allows high resolution (3000px) downloads of art.
- Jan-11: I added 14 new images for a total of 28. The additions include one from Caravaggio and several from Carl Bloch. In this update I decided to not crop some because cropping would have taken away much of the image. The background color is black. I also changed the window border color from light gray to white.
- Sep-10: Added two new images.
- Jun-09: Fixed one of the photos.
- Apr-09: Initial release, mainly using images from the Gospel Art Book made available by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
