Circle Of Thorns
Full Product Description
By exploring the political, scientific, psychological and devotional world of early modern Europe, and applying those insights to our own time, the author shows how Bosch used his sophisticated artistic skills to convey a similarly sophisticated understanding of humanity. In Christ Mocked -- a painting "500 years old but passionately modern" -- Christ's Passion is so portrayed as to make us reassess the cosmic significance of Christ's death, and its profound implications for what we think it means to be human.
Circle Of Thorns by Justin Lewis Anthony was published by Continuum in November 2008 and is our 60039th best seller. The ISBN for Circle Of Thorns is 9781906286217.

Circles of ThornsCarole Burrows, via The Good Book Stall
The author uses the painting “Christ Mocked (The Crowning With Thorns)” by Flemish painter Hieronymous Bosch (1450-1516) as a meditation on being human covering aspects of human life – frailties, needs, desires, sins and disappointments, in conjunction with the political, scientific, psychological and devotional world of early modern Europe, forming the five sections for consideration.
Politics – power used in the death of Christ
Elements – cosmic significance of the Passion
Temperaments – complexity of human character
Devotions – renewal of faith and spirituality
Quiddity – our beginning, ending, fulfilment, transformation
A deeply thoughtful and inspiring book combining medieval thought with 21st century life.
