I have thousand reasons to think that Michelangelo is a fascinating personage and the best artist of the whole history of the humanity, this leads me to searching providing that I can new publications in relation with his life and work. A few years ago across an article in press where they talked about a controversial book, I decided to look for it. In Spain still it had not been published, and I bought it a second hand bookshop in London. Only for the title we can think that it is a book religious or linked to the Catholic Church, but his reading confirmed to me the opposite and in addition it me revealed secrets that have been secret in view of the world for centuries.
The one who has visited the Sistine Chapel dazzling besides by that ” immense ceiling “, if observed the vault, could have verified that there is no an alone figure of the New Testament. Nothing.
When Michelangelo received the order of the Pope Julio II to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the most sacred place of the Christianity in West, he agreed and for four years (from 1508 to 1512) defying to the repressive Catholic Church of the epoch it carried out an ingenious labor inserting in the vault numerous messages that were spreading the reconciliation between the Jewish Bible and the New Testament creating a link between the Catholic Faith and the Hebrew Faith.
He risked his life, painted the Sistine Chapel under the requirements of the Pope but without an alone Christian figure. Only it portrayed prominent figures of Jewish Bible (excluding Sibyls). If a Jew examines the representation of the genesis in the altar it discovers infinity of cabbalistic signs combined with the paint, it is a question of deciphered codes that they reveal the ideology of the Italian painter who lived immersed in a stage of religious intrigues, conspiracies and repression. The authors warn in the book that to admire the miracle of the Sistine Chapel before we must know Michelangelo´s motivations, his origin, his intellectual enrichment in the Palace Médici his fascination for the Neo-Platonism, and the interest for the mystical educations. Blech and Doliner reveal what Michelangelo meant in the angelic representations that brilliantly mocked his papal patron, how he managed to sneak unorthodox heresies into his ostensibly pious portrayals, and how he was able to fulfill his lifelong ambition to bridge the wisdom of science with the strictures of faith. The Sistine Secrets unearths secrets that have remained hidden in plain sight for centuries.
