Instead, he sees the panels as a painted Utopia, reflecting the zeitgeist of the period. He links the work to the humanist theories of Thomas More and Willibald Pirckheimer and examines the question that Bosch posed: "What would the world have been like without the Fall?" In addition, the author determines the secular patron and analyses the intended purpose of the painting."--BOOK JACKET.
