In the lower left-hand corner, don’t miss the image of a lower-level devil bringing an unrepentant abbot to Satan… it looks like they had sticky-fingered and carousing clergy back then, too… things haven’t changed much have they? L’condition humaine is STILL l’condition humaine, and sinful-ginful humanity is up to the usual high-jinks (we’ve invented NOTHING new in that department, trust me). Bobby and Lyonyo are only the latest in a LONG line of stinking slinkers…
