Inhaltsangabe: Doré and the artisans in his studios produced woodcuts illustrating scenes from a wide variety of biblical stories in the case of this book The Apocrypha and the New Testament. His biblical illustrations were first published in 1865 in France and reprinted in the late 1860's in various German, English, and other editions. Doré's illustrations were extremely popular in both Europe and America in the last decades of the nineteenth century. For example, over 1.5 million people visited the Doré Exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1896. Several publishers also printed smaller collections of his biblical illustrations without the complete text of the Bible in so-called "Doré Bible Gallery" editions. His artistic style greatly influenced some of the early biblical films, especially those of D. W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille. In fact, some of the scenes from DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1923 & 1956) look remarkably similar to the corresponding biblical illustration by Doré.
