Missing Links: Arts, Religion and Reality
LIT Verlag Münster, 2000 - 198 pagina's
Are there "missing links", links that are "easy to miss" between art and religion and between the ways in which they respond to or partake of reality? The hypothesis of this anthology is that these in fact do exist and its authors explore these links on the basis of a specific text or oeuvre, a specific artwork or exhibition. Following an introductory essay exploring the discussion on relating art and religion, there are artides on Jannis Kounellis and Andrew Forster, on plays by William Shakespeare, Gerard Jan Rijnders and Anny van Hoof, on an exhibition curated by Julia Kristeva. There is an analysis of a novel by Frederic Buechner and one of the autobiographical writings of Dorothy Day. Poems of M. Vasalis and Judith Herzberg are considered, along with the music of Olivier Messiaen and Plato's dialogue 'Sophist'.

Pagina 60 - Hath not a Jew eyes ? hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions ? fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is ? If you prick us, do we not bleed ? if you tickle us, do we not laugh ? if you poison us, do we not die ? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge 1 if we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that.
Pagina 49 - I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano ; A stage, where every man must play a part, And mine a sad one.

Pagina 60 - Christian is ? if you prick us, do we not bleed ? if you tickle us, do we not laugh ? if you poison us, do we not die ? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge ? if we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility ? revenge ; If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? why, revenge. The villainy, you teach me, I will execute ; and it shall go hard, but I will better the instruction.
Pagina 54 - The most excellent Historic of the Merchant of Venice. With the extreame crueltie of Shylocke the Iewe towards the sayd Merchant, in cutting a iust pound of his flesh : and the obtayning of Portia by the choyse of three chests. As it hath beene diuers times acted by the Lord Chamberlaine his Seruants. Written by William Shakespeare.
Pagina 81 - I have kissed thy mouth. There was a bitter taste on thy lips. Was it the taste of blood ? Nay ; but perchance it was the taste of love. They say that love hath a bitter taste. But what matter? what matter? I have kissed thy mouth, lokanaan, I have kissed thy mouth.
Pagina 83 - When others too joined the crowds about him, because they were aroused to the highest degree by his sermons, Herod became alarmed. Eloquence that had so great an effect on mankind might lead to some form of sedition, for it looked as if they would be guided by John in everything that they did. Herod decided therefore that it would be much better to strike first and be rid of him before his work led to an uprising, than to wait for an upheaval, get involved in a difficult situation and see his mistake.

Herod decided therefore that it would be much better to strike first and be rid of him before his work led to an uprising, than to wait for an upheaval, get involved in a difficult situation and see his mistake. Though John, because of Herod's suspicions, was brought in chains to Machaerus, the stronghold that we have previously mentioned, and there put to death, yet the verdict of the Jews was that the destruction...
