The Gothic Image Religious Art In France Of The Thiteenth Century Re: Ideal Of Harmonious Order & Picture of the “Rider of the Apocalypse”
I love to read and collect vintage books. So when I found out that there was a church book sale nearby, I just had to go. They never disappoint and I was drawn to the above mentioned book. It was the Illustrated edition and printed in 1958 by Emile Male of Harper Torchbooks.
When I am interested in something it usually has a meaning behind it, sometimes it takes a bit of digging before I even understand it. Flipping through the book and skimming over it’s slight yellowing pages with pictures and drawings of almost strange images and art I notice the following:
“The Middle Ages had a passion for order. They organised art as they had organised dogma, secular learning and society. The artistic representation of sacred subjects was a science governed by fixed laws which could not be broken at the dictates of individual imagination. It cannot be questioned that this theology of art, if one may so put it, was soon reduced to a body of doctrine, for from very early times the craftsmen are seen submitting to it from one end of Europe to the other. This science was transmitted by the Church to the lay sculptors and painters of the thirteenth century who religiously guarded the sacred traditions, so that, even in the centuries in which it was most vigorous, mediaeval art retained the hieratic grandeur of primitive art.
These are the general principles which it concerns us to state at the outset as briefly as possible ”
*Please note this book was translated from French to English so understand the spelling mistakes in the above quote are from the actual introduction of the book.
When I was in Paris I visited Notre Dame and the Basilica. They were both very beautiful and incredible to say the least but there was a deeper meaning that my lighting of some candles didn’t really shine on. I was overwhelmed but still sensed feelings of something great. I would have no idea that years later I would have actually had the experience to recall it and finally understand a bit more.
I believe that what I am supposed to bring to light here in my blog is that mans constant drive for perfection has often gone about the wrong way by using evil and destruction. For instance, in this day and age we have some elite and their UN driving engine pushing something that probably looks great on paper but when it comes down to it, it is not. Is it possible to achieve a perfect utopia? Not by deception, I can tell you that! Plus it can only come about if all are considered for a good end result. I don’t understand how only a select few would be allowed to live in harmony while the others are treated so poorly! That bad energy will not fade, believe me! I am here to warn you. I am not doing this for any personal gain at all and what I do is truly for the greater good.
Read my Creating a Perfect Utopia and see the difference. It is based on truth, goodness and a want to succeed as a whole and not for only a tiny few. Of course we need to change things for the better but it needs to be done openly and with respect to the individuals in mind.
I also found a very interesting picture from the book that I wanted to share with you:
If you ignore my warnings then be prepared for what will come your way by means of your own hands. I am here to peacefully bring light to your dark minds and your dark hearts. Repent, beg for God’s forgiveness and stand together with us in the light of goodness so that we can go forward and truly create a perfect society. (that message was for the NWO globalists btw ).
I think it’s a circle society where the pyramid, where the ultra rich are propped up by the poor and struggling, is turned upside down and we are joined as one, just like in the natural order “circle” where we are said to go when we die but I sense that we are experiencing it now through the internet. A deeper form of communication and the sharing of information.
