What the study of Isenheim altar can give?

The Isenheim Altar is more than a great work of art by a brilliant artist, called Grünewald. The altar contains the information that awakens the inherent knowledge in us about the HUMAN as a cosmic being. The knowledge of our place in the universal happening is touched, as only in this, the dignity of the human being is rooted.

The scenes of the Isenheim Altar describe the inner states and processes of man, which are clothed in Christian images, based on a cosmological model. This model is much older than Christianity. Only through a knowledge that is confirmed by our heart, we can understand, classify and transform our concrete experiences to the substance of our being.
