One of the most well-known religious texts, the Bible, has impacted how societies of the past and present have defined what is right or wrong, good or evil. According to this text, those faithful to God are rewarded and considered “good” and rewarded with an eternity in heaven, while those unable to establish a relationship with Him are considered “evil” and are forced to suffer in hell forever. The popularity of Christianity has led to an abundance of Christian art that depicts polarities of “good and evil”, from the terror you face if you refuse God to the rewards you will receive if you follow his omnipotent word. For example, Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, The Last Judgment, and The Garden of Earthly Delights provide vivid contrast between what is inherently good (obedience, faith, loyalty) and what is inherently evil (insubordination, sinners, treachery) through landscapes. Writers and artists of all epochs also have sought to explain their beliefs on good and evil through their work, which often relate back to religion. In particular, Epictetus, Lucretius, Henry David Thoreau, and Frederick Nietzsche have explored this and its connection to morality, each differing in opinions depending on defining characteristics of the time in which they lived. Along with these writers, more recent personalities have made statements about good and evil which we have incorporated in order to connect with more modern views of “good and evil." We are allowing these texts and more modern quotations to question the roots of the artwork in which they accompany.
