Visualising the Bible

This extraordinarily beautiful image comes from Visualising the Bible, a site which visualises the textual cross references found in the Bible. The site's owner, Chris Harrison, explains that he and his collaborator "wanted something that honored and revealed the complexity of the data at every level", and in this I think they've succeeded.

The site has other diagrams and different ways of expressing the relationships between Biblical texts, as well as frequency visualisations. Not quite the stuff of the Lay Training class - but fascinating. I'm indebted to Ewan for remembering my more esoteric interests ...
