This post started with the title. When I found this line in Matthew 11:19, I liked it so much, I felt I have to build something around it. I already had a bunch of drawings with people seated at the table, eating and drinking, which I couldn’t identify exactly, so I thought I’d group them together under this line. Then I came up with some more categories. Here they are: 1. The Son of Man came eating and drinking; 2. Lilies; 3. Odd round-shaped objects; 4. Winged guys; 5. Guys with crowns; 6. Guys with mitres; 7. Soldiers; 8. Scribes.
1. The son of man came eating and drinking
It is debatable whether the plants in 16, 42 and 79 are lilies. However, in 79, The Last Judgment, from the head of Jesus sprouts a sword and a lily, or so it should. In the small drawing from page 71 it is more likely the hand of Jesus, extended in blessing
3. Odd disc-like objects
Some of this objects are obviously orbs or globis cruciger (like in 9, 21, 57, 95), but what are the rest?
4. Winged Guys
5. Guys with crowns
6. Guys with mitres
and what the heck wears this one?
And a very martial guy,
8. Scribes – they are four, like the evangelists.
