Hypnerotomachia Poliphili - Satyr
Type of Spiritual Experience
The Hypnerotomachia Poliphili was written by Francesco Colonna, a Dominican friar in the 16th century and in the course of the book just about every symbolic spiritual feature is incorporated into the story. And one of the features he saw was a fountain depicting a satyr…
The text says "At her feet, there stood a satyr, all aroused in prurient lust."
For those [like me] who do not know what prurient means it is defined as 'Characterized by an inordinate interest in sex: prurient thoughts. b. Arousing or appealing to an inordinate interest in sex:'
Inordinate is not defined. Wonderful.
