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 -- Christs Passion is so portrayed as to make us reassess the cosmic significance of Christs death, and its profound implications for what we think it means to be human.
