      Matthias Grünewald (ca. –) painted the Crucifixion as a panel for the Isenheim Altarpiece in the hospital chapel of St. Anthony’s monastery. The monastery hospital specialized in the treatment of ergotism, an especially painful skin disease. The Christ figure in the painting is depicted as suffering from these same sores—a sign to the patients that Christ shared in.   I was going to write a piece, simply, On Being a Christian; but I was reading Barth, and instead I thought I would report on his interpretation of Grünewald’s Isenheim exegesis aligns with what I really wanted to say on being a Christian; only better, of course. Barth shares his insight just as we are entering §15 in his CD I/2; the section on The Mystery of Revelation.

    This book-length prose-poem uses the preoccupations of Grünewald and especially his creation of the Isenheim Altarpiece to communicate an intensely apocalyptic vision of a world that has abandoned nature. [7] The Isenheim Altarpiece also features in the last chapter of Sebald's novel The Emigrants.   The Isenheim altarpiece was painted by the German artist Matthias Grünewald between and for the hospital chapel of St Anthony's monastery in Isenheim.
