For the next few weeks my sacredartpilgrim sister site will present images celebrating the donkey in religious art. This humble beast of burden figures in several biblical narratives, one of which is the subject of my posting for the beginning of the summer--the story of Balaam's ass, found in the Hebrew Scriptures in the Book of Numbers, Chapter 22.…
