Anselm Atkins (1934-1999)

Anselm Atkins was born in 1934. A well-known artist, author, and humanist, he spent most of his life in Georgia.
Atkins learned how to create stained glass art as a Trappist monk at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers; the monastery features some of his windows. Atkins later left the monastery and earned a doctorate in literature and theology from Emory University in Atlanta. A longtime member of the Atlanta Audubon Society, he wrote articles and created art for the society's newsletter for sixteen years. Atkins died from liver cancer on September 10, 1999.
An untitled stained glass piece, created by Atkins in partnership with Kenneth E. Moss, is part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
