YES! Something differennt

Readers, this is not my usual Mob adventure (let’s face it, they’ve already gone Medieval 🙂 ) or ghost story, but something else. ‘WAY, ‘way else :). if you like medieval spirituality, art, art history, HieronymusBosch, The Garden of Earthly Delightsand what it means, not to mention love, sex and sin in the medieval mind – this title may have your name on it!

My new book, Love in Bosch’s Garden: Profane and Sacred Love in the Medieval Imagination  is now available here: https://www.amazon.com/Jan-Olandese/e/B071FK9L75 

Have a look!  This is a thought-provoking, scholarly (but not boring!) examination of salvation and the role of devotional art in medieval spirituality, and lots about Bosch! Sex and sin, too – so what’s not to like? 🙂
