    The modestly-sized and sombre Christ Mocked is one of Hieronymus Bosch's less famous paintings, but it speaks powerfully to the modern viewer. Drawing on sources as varied as Thomas a Kempis, Terry Pratchett and Bob Dylan, this book's five meditations on the painting explore the political, scientific, psychological and devotional world of early modern Europe and reveal Bosch's depth of understanding about the Passion and what it means to be fully human.
