Saint Vincent College professor of fine arts Ben Schachter recently published a blog, “The Flow of Things: Ruminations on Talmudic Layout,” on www.thetalmudblog.wordpress.com, a Jewish studies website.

“The Talmud is a compound text made from several religious commentaries,” Schachter explained. “The layout of the pages is unique and adds to the dialogue and understanding these multiple texts create. Graphic design, in this case a millennial old one, adds to religious understanding.”

The blog is available at: http://thetalmudblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/30/the-flow-of-things-ruminations-on-talmudic-layout/
