This article presents information on the book "The Millenium of Hieronymus Bosch, by Wilhelm Fraenger. Fraenger's brilliant book clears up the mystery in a most decisive way. He makes a detailed study of one painting, the famous triptych now in the Prado Museum in Madrid which used to be known as The Garden of Earthly Deligbis, but which the author now entitles The Millenium. Obviously this painting' follows the tradition of the late Gothic altar-piece, but equally obviously its contents are so antagonistic to any orthodox religious requirements that it cannot possibly have been executed for a Christian church.
