Holy Infographics


The Guardian (oddly enough) has an interesting collection of attempts to present aspects of the Bible in visual form (here). My favourite is the picture above of biblical cross-references. Here is the description:

This is about how the bible speaks to itself - or the textual cross-references within it. The bar graph that runs along the bottom represents all of the chapters in the Bible. Books alternate between white and light gray and the length of each bar denotes the number of verses in the chapter. Each of the 63,779 cross references found in the Bible is depicted by a single arc - the color corresponds to the distance between the two chapters, creating a rainbow-like effect.
