share on Facebook


This book combines the benefits of a solid catechism and the finest artwork with an affordable price. The Apostle’s Creed, the Ten Commandments, the Commandments of the Church, Sin, Virtue, the Sacraments and Prayer are all brought to life with illustrations and quotes from Scripture pertaining to the precepts being taught.

Recommended by Cardinal Wiseman, and even the London Art Journal in May 1863 recommended this Pictorial Catechism for its “One hundred and twelve wood engravings, well executed, after the original designs of a distinguished artist of the Dusseldorf school.”

The table of contents displays the tenets to be learned, while an index helps the reader find images in chronological order as they are found in the Bible.

The engravings make perfect coloring pages for children.
