The Digital Bible Foundation stresses the importance of the section “Humanists of the eBible”. This is a section that belongs to the foundation’s organization chart. This section includes all kind of humanists who base their intellectual and artistic activity on a Christian personal inspiration. Those are artists, writers, scholars, historians, poets, composers and musicians, painters, sculptors and so on.
This is the process of incorporation in this section: The “Humanist of the eBible” expresses his/her concern about his/her belonging to the Digital Bible Foundation, and his/her desire to contribute to the increase of the Bible engagement all over the world. The eBible humanists commit themselves to the creation of a cultural legacy for future generations. This legacy outlines the importance of the Christian presence in the different areas of society in the world.
The potential creativity of artists with a Christian inspiration is enormous due to the component of spiritual transcendence of their artistic experimentation. These artists are many and their work is very valuable. They have a strong originality because they perform artistic experiments in a spiritual frame. Their artistic and intellectual work can become unknown, in spite of their artistic value. As time goes by, a little part of these works can become a real legacy for humankind. However, there are some works that can be consigned to oblivion, although their artistic contribution could be so meaningful to the history of art and literature. The FDB is committed to save from silence and oblivion those works with artistic values and Christian contribution. Therefore, the section “Humanists of the eBible” can be the best option for preserving artistic and intellectual legacies from the passage of time.
In conclusion, a concrete goal of the FDB consists on publishing the Complete Works of the Humanists of the eBible, so that their artistic and intellectual contribution will be preserved and available for the General Public. In addition, the FDB publishes these Works by using the new digital technologies (eBooks, audio visuals, etc.), in which the Foundation has specialized programs and projects.
- STATUTE OF THE EBIBLE'S HUMANIST
Artists, writers and scholars who desire to become part of the FDB’s section “Humanists of the eBible” must apply to the Board of Trustees. The FDB’s Board will study your application, your artistic and intellectual work, and will consider if your contribution fits with the eBible project’s objectives. Once the humanist has adhered to the Foundation and has ceded the intellectual rights to the Foundation, the Humanist of the eBible will be able to give advice to the FDB in its decisions, to diffuse the values of the FDB, and finally to develop plans and activities.
