Example text

To these brethren, “the strictest sanctification of love” was the way by which they could reach human perfection; this estate they saw embodied in Adam and Eve, who were themselves made in the image of God’s divine perfection. The converse became the second principle; that because man is made in the image of God, he can only endure in this highest of all estates by the practice of a sublimated act of love. As to the nature of this act, Fränger saw in the court record two possible answers. ” In other words, it could mean the natural act so purified in the mind “that it should no longer be felt as a humiliating animal act, but as the expression of an exalting, divine, creative principle”.

Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid. qxp 12/8/2011 3:04 PM Page 62 Fränger’s most trenchant case (after his book on the “Millennium”) for Almaengien’s influence over Bosch’s iconography was presented in his book of 1950 on The Marriage Feast at Cana (p. 130). Here, he claimed that the artist had turned the chamber of the marriage feast into the dining hall of a wealthy family with no qualms about ostentatious display at the same time as he turned it into a place of heathen practice.

In his exegesis on Bosch’s Temptation of Saint Anthony, Fränger spoke of the “magical” effect of moving from the “leaden-grey prologue” of the outer panels to the “hallucinatory luminosity of the three inner panels on which the strangest phantasmagoria unfolds”. ) The central landscape of the inner panels is replete with a “cyclopean cave”, “exotic towers”, an “obelisk with reliefs”; in “an in-between land where the familiar veers off into the uncanny”, where a “spooky tumult in which sexuality intertwines with the trefoil of idolatry, magic, and sodomy serves above all to excite the roving eye”.
