Poliphile’s dream

(GIF)

The incunabula of the Renaissance called Poliphile’s dream recall a dreamed pilgrimage, amongst antic ruins. Behind this alleviating appearance lies a mystic text that had influenced significantly Renaissance’s period humanistic thinkers as well as Italian and French artists, from Pic of Mirandole, Alberti, Da Vinci, Copernicus, Galilee, François the 1st.

Under the lead of Polia, which symbolizes wisdom and knowledge (Cognoissance), standing in front of the fountain of life, where Aphrodite linked to Adonis, the hero Poliphile discovers the divine act which creates life.
Humanistic thinkers deduced that, in creation processes, one should try to retrieve the function of the visible world space, as a mirror of the invisible world. This is a way to emphasize the divine origin of the physical life in the visible world. This labyrinth like pilgrimage teach us that the most efficient way to approach metaphysic questions such as life creation and divine knowledge is to look carefully at the physical world, that is, the nature, and the way its rebirth each Spring.

Her name is Lucrezia

Poliphile’s vision tells us about the quest of Divinity. But to help us to better understand it, the author mixes in a love story between a teenage girl and his lover. Her name is Lucrezia, and she’s 13 years old. In 1462, 13 years old was the time where girls were usually engaged. On a spring morning of April, the teenage girl caps its long fair hair, drying with the sun. Leaning at a window of his father’s palace, she lets her shining hair streaming with the wind. A young man pass by, raise the eyes, see Lucrezia’s smiling face thru its gilded wicks, and praise for its beauty. His heart is on fire. This appends in the story told by Pholiphile. In the second act of the dream, the two lovers must face several challenges and finally find themselves beyond the curtains of the sleep and death.

Poliphile’s idyll, his quest of light beyond death recalls to us another well known story : Romeo and Juliet.

Festina lente
This text has been first written in Latin. Then, to preserve it from roman censorship, it has been translated in a language that is a mix of Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Arab and Venetian. The credit for this rescue operation is probably to give to Francesco Colonna, prince of Palestrina. This is why it used to say that the author is Francesco Colonna itself. But it may be inaccurate. Most of coded pictures of these incunabula will nurture the theories of roman humanistic popes, from Nicolas V, founder of the Vatican Bibliotheca and Pie II, his successor (Poliphile’s story stops in 1467, 3 years after Pie II’s death, one year before the intellectuals’ trial)

For instance, the famous festina lente (speed up slowly) is illustrated in Poliphile’s incunabula with a dolphin emblem, which symbolizes Plato’s fast intuition that helps to discover mysteries, and an anchor, emphasizing Aristotle’s stability in thinking.
