      "Abraham Sacrificing of Isaac" - painting by Caravaggio -1605

    • Randy Salars

      Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard-In this book Kierkegard creates a case study from the famous bible story (Genesis 22) from when Abraham is famously commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac. Kierkegaard uses the story as an opportunity to question the philosophy of religion, the relationship between philosophy and religion, the nature of God and faith, faith’s relationship with ethics and morality, and the difficulty of being authentically religious. It is manly to ask questions about the bigger things – there is more to life than sports.

      Caravaggio or Michelangelo Merisi o Amerighi da Caravaggio (Italian 1571?–1610) [Baroque] Sacrifice of Isaac, 1602. Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence.

    • M Stewart

      "Sacrifice of Isaac" circa 1603 by Caravaggio (Milan 1561 - Porto 1610). His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of chiaroscuro, had a formative influence on the Baroque. This came to be known as Tenebrism. His novelty was a radical naturalism. The painting shows the moment when Abraham, about to sacrifice his son Isaac in obedience to God's command, is stayed by an angel who offers him a ram in Isaac's place.
