Paradise: Ascent of the Blessed
Oil on panel, 86,5 x 39,5 cm

They gaze with ecstatic yearning towards the great light which bursts through the darkness overhead. This funnel-shaped radiance, with its distinct segments, probably owes much to contemporary zodiacal diagrams, but in Bosch’s hands it has become a shining corridor through which the blessed approach that final and perpetual union of the soul with God which is experienced on earth only in rare moments of spiritual exaltation.”

I suggest that we talk about this like rational men.
