ILLUMINATION   A collective Reformation

Jung (1933) said that the “artist moves us through the age” (p. 169), and he called for a new movement like “at the Renaissance [an art movement Jung said marked the rebirth of the soul’s images]” where “the Divine freed itself from the Church and lived elsewhere, and this in spite of the saying, ‘Outside the Church is not salvation’” (Jung, 1923, p. 22).

 

Describing the Church’s creed as “eternal death,” he said that it “is a terrible mutilation when man is compelled to live only by a truth two thousand years old and thereby sacrifice his actual life to a mummy” (p. 22).  Implying that it was time for a Reformation (reforming) and Renaissance (rebirth) of the soul’s images in art, Jung explained that “fanaticism is due to an unconscious doubt threatening the conscious attitude” (p. 22). Seeming to speak to the religious and political fanaticism of today, Jung’s call for the return of the soul’s images in art is explored as a timely emergence of the eternal rhizome.
