Fr. Michael Morris, OP, taught one of the most memorable classes I've ever taken.  It was a course on Church history through art, in which Fr. Michael helped us see various interpretations of events in the Church through the eyes of artists throughout the ages.  Another popular course that Fr. Michael has taught (but I wasn't able to squeeze into my course load) was called "Reel Religion," which looked at how biblical themes were addressed by film makers throughout the years.

What I had forgotten was that Fr. Michael has an extensive collection of movie posters from these films with biblical topics.  But the LA Times reminded me of this extraordinary collection in an article you can read here.  Great publicity for Fr. Michael and the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology!
