Hieronymus Bosch by Larry Silver

No one can look at the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch without amazement
and bewilderment. Professor Gibson shows that what seems inexplicable
to us today—the canvases full of torture, monsters, and leering
devils—was perfectly intelligible to the fifteenth-century viewer. The
subjects of Bosch's paintings were in fact the overwhelming concerns of
late medieval Europe: the Last Judgment, original sin, death,
temptations of the flesh. The author describes each picture in detail,
placing each work within the context of medieval folklore and religion,
and explains that many of the acts portrayed in the pictures were
visual translations of verbal puns or metaphors.
