Re Christ in Limbo: I've seen other versions, but I love this one showing the guardian devil squashed under the door. The Master of Osservanza was either being a little bit humorous, or couldn't be bothered to draw a whole demon...


I think I do not like this fellow Plato, not only for causing the term "platonic love," but also for willfully misrepresenting "that region which is mingled with darkness, the world of becoming and passing away." This IS our existence, and not so bad, and ignoring the truth of becoming and passing away is to miss the truth of our existence. So there!, Mr. Plato.
