Bush,  Bill Clinton,   and George W. Carter serves as an Honorary Chair for the World Justice Project ,   and formerly served as one on the Continuity of Government Commission from to Although Carter was "personally opposed" to abortion , he supported legalized abortion  after the landmark US Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade , US As president, he did not support increased federal funding for abortion services. He was criticized by the American Civil Liberties Union for not doing enough to find alternatives. In a March 29, interview with Laura Ingraham , Carter expressed his current view of abortion and his wish to see the Democratic Party becoming more pro-life: I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions and that was one of the problems I had when I was president having to uphold Roe v.
Wade and I did everything I could to minimize the need for abortions. I made it easy to adopt children for instance who were unwanted and also initiated the program called Women and Infant Children or WIC program that's still in existence now. But except for the times when a mother's life is in danger or when a pregnancy is caused by rape or incest I would certainly not or never have approved of any abortions.
I've signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need, requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose life [ sic ] are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest. I think if the Democratic Party would adopt that policy that would be acceptable to a lot of people who are now estranged from our party because of the abortion issue. Carter is known for his strong opposition to the death penalty, which he expressed during his presidential campaigns, as had George McGovern.
Two successive nominees, Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis , also opposed the death penalty. In a letter to the Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson , Carter urged the governor to sign a bill to eliminate the death penalty and institute life in prison without parole instead. New Mexico abolished the death penalty in He opened the article: California voters will have the opportunity to do this on election day.
Carter has also called for commutations of death sentences for many death-row inmates, including Brian K. Baldwin executed in in Alabama ,  Kenneth Foster sentence in Texas commuted in   and Troy Anthony Davis executed in Georgia in In October , Carter, a third-generation Southern Baptist, announced that he was severing connections to the Southern Baptist Convention over its opposition to women as pastors. What led Carter to take this action was a doctrinal statement by the Convention, adopted in June , advocating a literal interpretation of the Bible.
This statement followed a position of the Convention two years previously advocating the submission of wives to their husbands. Carter described the reason for his decision as due to: In subsequent years, Carter has joined with other world leaders who have spoken out about the subjugation of women by religious and other institutions. On July 15, , Carter wrote an opinion piece about equality for women in which he stated that he chooses equality for women over the dictates of the leadership of what has been a lifetime religious commitment.
He said that the view that women are inferior is not confined to one faith, "nor, tragically does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. The truth is that male religious leaders have had—and still have—an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women.
They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter. Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world. This is in clear violation not just of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but also the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, Moses and the prophets, Muhammad, and founders of other great religions—all of whom have called for proper and equitable treatment of all the children of God.
It is time we had the courage to challenge these views. In , he published A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power. Carter has publicly expressed support for a ban on assault weapons and background checks of gun buyers. House of Representatives in support of banning "semi-automatic assault guns. Carter has stated that he supports same-sex marriage in civil ceremonies. I don't have any verse in scripture. I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that's just my own personal belief. I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else.
Carter ignited debate in September when he stated, "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he is African-American. I'm sure there are In a interview with Amnesty International , Carter criticized the use of torture at Guantanamo Bay , saying that it "contravenes the basic principles on which this nation was founded.
In an October interview, Carter labeled the Affordable Care Act President Obama's major accomplishment and said "the implementation of it now is questionable at best". Carter and his wife Rosalynn are well known for their work as volunteers with Habitat for Humanity , a Georgia-based philanthropy that helps low-income working people around the world to build and buy their own homes and access clean water.
Carter's hobbies include painting,  fly-fishing , woodworking, cycling, tennis, and skiing. Carter was also a personal friend of Elvis Presley. Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, met him on June 30, , before Presley was to perform onstage in Atlanta. Carter later recalled an abrupt phone call received by Presley in June , who sought a presidential pardon from Carter, in order to help George Klein 's criminal case; Klein had only been indicted at the time for fraud.
From a young age, Carter showed a deep commitment to Christianity. Carter had been greatly influenced by a sermon he had heard as a young man. It asked, "If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? In , Carter severed his membership with the Southern Baptist Convention , saying the group's doctrines did not align with his Christian beliefs. The broadly inclusive movement seeks to unite Baptists of all races, cultures and convention affiliations. The group held its first meeting in Atlanta, January 30 through February 1, Carter had three younger siblings, all of whom died of pancreatic cancer: Carter and Rosalynn Smith were married in July They have three sons, one daughter , eight grandsons, three granddaughters, and two great-grandsons.

On August 3, , Carter underwent elective surgery to remove "a small mass" on his liver , and his prognosis for a full recovery was initially said to be "excellent". On August 12, however, Carter announced he had been diagnosed with cancer that had metastasized , without specifying where the cancer had originated.
His healthcare is being managed by Emory Healthcare of Atlanta. The former president has an extensive family history of cancer, including both of his parents and all three of his siblings. Carter has made arrangements to be buried in front of his home in Plains, Georgia. Carter noted in that a funeral in Washington, D. In the wake of Nixon's Watergate Scandal , exit polls from the presidential election suggested that many still held Gerald Ford 's pardon of Nixon against him. In the campaign, former California Governor Ronald Reagan projected an easy self-confidence, in contrast to Carter's serious and introspective temperament.
What many people believed to be Carter's personal attention to detail, his pessimistic attitude, his seeming indecisiveness and weakness with people were accentuated in contrast to what many people believed, Reagan's charismatic charm and delegation of tasks to subordinates. Like his immediate predecessor, Gerald Ford, Carter did not serve a second term as president. Among those who were elected as president, Carter was the first since Hoover in to lose a reelection bid. Carter's post-presidency activities have been favorably received. Carter's presidency was initially viewed by some as a failure.
Although his presidency received mixed reception, his peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts since he left office have made Carter renowned as one of the most successful ex-presidents in American history.

Los Angeles—Courtiers feasting at elaborately set tables, knights in gleaming armor, a richly clad monarch presiding over elegant festivities—these are the images often associated with the medieval and Renaissance courts of Europe.
For rulers and members of the nobility at the center of these privileged spaces, the visual arts—illuminated manuscripts, paintings, drawings, enamels, and textiles—were central aspects of their political and cultural identities. The manuscripts that recorded such courtly pastimes were themselves valued as luxury goods and much sought after by the nobility. In aristocratic households all over continental Europe, even expressions of religious faith took a luxurious material form.
The adherence to chivalric code and the way it governed both belief and behavior at the Renaissance courts was established in the Middle Ages but emerged with renewed vigor during the late medieval period. A number of dazzling and complex objects including manuscripts and stained glass explore the display of heraldry at court, where rank and systems of social hierarchy were incredibly important. Objects produced for kings, queens, and courtiers enshrined ideals of chivalry, especially in the form of jousting that continued to guide official conduct into the sixteenth century.
The exhibition concludes with a display of illuminated manuscript leaves from the court of King Louis XIV at Versailles, where the splendor of European court life reached its apex in the seventeenth-century. The display of heraldry, personal emblems, fine textiles, and luxury books continued to affirm social standing and good taste. Related programming includes a performance of music from the period by the group Cappella Pratensis and An American Court: A Conversation with Former White House Curator William Allman , a discussion that will reveal the history of the White House collection and how various presidents have used art to help define their administrations and deliver cultural messages.

The photographers and artists in this exhibition see the self-published photobook as a place of independence, a place where they can experiment freely with form, but, more importantly, as a testing ground for reflection, self-examination, meditation and ideas that the main market does little to accommodate.
The quick turnaround from concept to creation also allows them to react to national and international news, making the books not only an aesthetic endeavor but also a political one. The chosen books illustrate very personal subjects such as family, memory, loss and identity as well as larger topics such as immigration, displacement and exile and catastrophic events such as World War II, the AIDS epidemic, September 11 and Fukushima. A few are historical and most contemporary.
They originate from twenty countries: It had been predicted that the rise of the Internet would mean the end of the book on paper. Readers still crave a hands-on experience and the concrete sensations associated with reading and looking. While some deplore the rise of self-publishing because it tramples the gates and gatekeepers who once decided what should be published, the trend gave artists new freedom. Self-published photobooks provide the experience of looking at work the way the artist envisioned it.
Most self-published photobooks are issued in limited editions, hand-numbered or signed, which makes them works of arts themselves. They become places for debating ideas, articulating insights and experience, and testing out new forms. And many are objects of beauty.

Paul Getty Museum recently announced the acquisition of the Rothschild Pentateuch, a manuscript of the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, known as the Torah. Art of Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam trace their belief in the singular God to a common patriarch, the figure of Abraham. The Torah is the central sacred text of Judaism. In the strictest sense, the word refers to the Pentateuch, which contains the books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
Illuminated copies of the Hebrew Bible in codex form, rather than Torah scrolls, began to appear in the mid-thirteenth century. In northern Europe, these manuscripts served the needs of members of the Ashkenazi Jewish community who had settled in the area along the Rhine River. Lavishly illustrated Hebrew manuscripts are exceedingly rare, since Jewish artisans were forbidden by law to join painting guilds.
Hebrew manuscripts were often written by itinerant Jewish scribes and illuminated by local, sometimes Christian, artists. Illumination of the Hebrew Bible centers on the calligraphic forms of the letters, such as initials, word panels, or decorative frames around blocks of text.
Through exhibitions such as this one, they foster a deeper understanding of history that helps us to reflect on our own shared experiences. The first part of the Christian Bible consists of texts from the Hebrew Bible, referred to since the second century by Christian writers as the Old Testament. Medieval Christians understood it not only as a historical document but also as a body of prophecy that specifically foretold the coming of Christ.
Illuminated Bibles—handwritten and printed alike—are among the most enduring forms of Christian book art produced during the Middle Ages. Muslims transmitted scripture through oral tradition for the first few centuries, and later recorded it through beautiful and ornate calligraphy. Artists incorporated Quranic verses into books, textiles, coins, ceramics, and architecture, demonstrating reverence for the written word.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the Islamic word spanned a vast territory, from the Iberian Peninsula to northern and coastal Africa, across the Mediterranean basin, and as far as Central and Eastern Asia.

Hawkesworth was a respected London author and was commissioned by the Admiralty to edit the journals of the sea captains.
Although this book was a huge success and became a best-seller, it was less successful for Hawkesworth who was attacked by the captains for tampering with the texts of their journals, by prudish readers for reprinting descriptions of the sexual freedoms of the South Sea islanders, and by devout churchmen for the immoral introduction. Hawkesworth was devastated by the criticism, and it was thought to be the main cause of his death. This account was written by Cook himself and it is noted for its very high-quality illustrations.
