Alleluia, He is risen!

Passignano (1600-1625)

This beautiful counter-reformation piece teaches us about the true nature of Christ, fully human and fully divine, as we see Him bridging the gap between earth and heaven.  The captions are a common teaching piece at the time.  Absorpta est mors in victoria means “Death has been absorbed/taken up by victory,” and the caption at the bottom says “You have made know to me the ways of life.  With your countenance, you will fill me with joy.”
