Do you all know of the Keiskamma altarpiece? I didn't, until last week.
Above are a couple of youtubes telling its story.
Here's more info from the Fowler Museum at UCLA, where the altarpiece visited.
Here's a wonderful essay by Barbara Hinze, from the American Medical Association's Journal of Ethics, entitled "Saint Anthony's Fire and AIDS: Two Altarpieces and the Oft-Forgotten Goals of Medicine."
