Creation Devotional June 15 - History

Daily Devotional – June 15



Have you considered that there are ancient depictions of dinosaurs in artwork from around the world? Ancient civilizations called these creatures “dragons” because the word dinosaur was not invented until 1841. In his book Dire Dragons, Vance Nelson documents many examples of this artwork throughout the world. These are but a few:


  • On Bishop Bell’s tomb (1496) in Carlisle England, there is a brass plate on the floor of the Carlisle Cathedral showing two sauropods with their necks intertwined.
  • On the back of a clergy chair at St. David’s Cathedral in Wales, there is a dragon which looks startlingly like a sauruopod found in Argentina known as Brachytrachelopan mesai.
  • The Chateau Royal de Blois in France has 16th century carvings of a Plateosaurus dinosaur.
  • Above the fireplace of the Azay-le-Rideau castle in France is a 16th century carving of a dragon that looks remarkably like modern depictions of dinosaurs. Also, a beautiful table has one of its drawers carved with a dragon/dinosaur.
  • St. George’s Chapel in Barcelona, Spain, “Palau de La Generalitat,” has an altar cloth from the 1600s showing St. George slaying a dragon/dinosaur.


Artwork from Medieval Europe supports the fact that man and dinosaurs did live together.


Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

~ Psalm 148:7
