Beschreibung des Verlags
An exploration of esoteric meaning in the art of the middle ages, this book traces the author’s travels through France and Burgundy to visit important gothic cathedrals and cistercian locations. Examining tapestry, sculpture, and painting, rich hidden spiritual meanings are revealed and discussed. The book traces elements of the western medieval artistic tradition back to both classical and preclassical Babylonian sources, and uncovers some of the direct sources of inspiration for the seemingly bizarre imagery in the paintings in Hieronymous Bosch.
Along the way, the book illuminates forgotten aspects of an ancient and profoundly fecund inner tradition of spiritual growth and insight.
