  • The MHEU | The bath in mythology
    Bible life giving water plays either a beneficial purifying role or is a means of making the land fertile Rivers either real or imaginary the Styx and its tributaries the Ganges the Paktolos the Nile and so on are brimming with mythical creatures or are the setting for fundamental myths such as the Naiads the Bath of Diana the birth of Isis or Aphrodite the wealth of Croesus or the grotto of Lourdes The Fountain of Youth The origin of the myth of a fountain whose waters have the power to stem or even reverse the ageing process is uncertain it could be biblical Celtic Germanic or Middle Eastern But those who quested after it did not meet with good fortune Alexander the Great is said to have died from not having found it while Juan Ponce de León the conquistador and contemporary of Christopher Columbus undertook two expeditions to the West Indies in search of it In 1513 he discovered Florida without realizing it but eventually died as a result of an injury on his second attempt Luckily Donald Duck fared better http www youtube com watch v e5ml8RGEwCk The three great monotheistic religions moreover have their own bathing related rituals Christian baptism the Jewish mikvah and the Muslim ablutions The Fountain of Youth The Fountain of Youth is possibly a late work painted around 1546 Cranach who was one of the chief creators of Protestant iconography here abandons religious themes and using the excuse of a mythological subject paints a probably humorous slightly moralistic and delightfully ironic playful work The fountain appears to rejuvenate only the women brought on horseback by cart or wheelbarrow or carried on someone s back by the people On the other side however it is the nobles who receive the far from shy
