The Bible Continues to life with an exclusive Costume and Artifacts display that began earlier this month and extends through Monday, November 30th.
The special collection from the series includes the exquisite garments worn by the characters Pilate (Vincent Regan), Herodias (Claire Cooper), Caiaphas (Richard Coyle) and, of course, Jesus Christ (played by Juan Pablo di Pace). Besides the wardrobe, masks and jewelry used in the epic production, tour takers will learn the history and process that went into creating these one-of-a-kind garments. They can also view a special feature from the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release entitled The Fabric of our Time which showcases the exquisite work from costume designer Luciano Capozzi and his team of skilled artists.
“We are excited to bring A.D. to life through the Passages Exhibit,” says Roma Downey, “Luciano’s incredible research is showcased in every detail. He’s an amazing artist and an exceptional talent.”
A.D. The Bible Continuesi originally aired on NBC and was produced by Light Workers Media with Burnett, Downey and Richard Bedser serving as executive producers. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released the spectacular 12-part Series to Blu-ray and DVD on November 3rd.
