UFO's in Ancient & Medieval Artwork

Apart from its presence in ancient cave paintings and mythologies, the presence of saucer shaped flying objects are also visible in many famous European medieval artwork. Following are some famous controversial paintings of such kind:

Image

Image
These images of two crusaders date from a 12th century manuscript Annales Laurissenses" (volumes/books about historical and religion events) and refer to a UFO sighting in the year 776, during the siege on Sigiburg castle, France.



Image

Image
These two tapestries were created in the 15th century. Both depict the life of Mary. Hat shaped objects can be clearly seen in both tapestries. The one on the right is entitled "The Magnificent". Both are located at the French basilica Notre-Dame



Image
The above painting is by Carlo Crivelli (1430-1495) and is called "The Annunciation" (1486) and hangs in the National Gallery, London. A disk shaped object is shining a pencil beam of light down onto the crown of Mary's head. A blow up of the object can be seen below:

Image



Image
The above is a painting on wood drawer from furniture kept at the Earls Doltremond, Belgium. Moses is receiving the tablets and several objects in the sky are seen near by. Date and artist unknown.


Image
The above picture depicts Jesus and Mary on what appear to be lenticular clouds. The painting is entitled "The Miracle of the Snow" and was painted by Masolino Da Panicale (1383-1440) and hangs at the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Florence, Italy.



Image
This image is by Flemish artist Aert De Gelder and is entitled "The Baptism of Christ" It was painted in 1710 and hangs in the Fitzwilliam Musuem, Cambridge. A disk shaped object is shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus.




The opponents of ufology states that, explanations for these round shaped objects would vary from painting to painting. Many experts referred to ‘Abstract’ & ‘modern art’ and stated that the meaning of these objects might vary from artist to artist & may not necessarily carry the same meaning in all these pictures. Hence concluding that all these artists encountered flying saucers in their life and then drew the picture in a symbolic way to alert the future generation, would be a stupid assumption to hold.

The usual explanation for these mysterious objects concludes in a similar pattern and to the opponents, the obvious answer is: ‘Religious Symbolism’! In 2004, Diego Cuoghi (a renowned italian art historian, writer & artist) came with a detailed explanation of all these paintings. In his publication, The Art of Imagining UFOs, in Skeptic, he tried to portray the symbolism of many famous artist of that time and presented a very rational meaning behind most of these paintings.

Here is a link where you will find some translated portion of The Art of Imagining UFO's: http://www.sprezzatura.it/Arte/Arte_UFO_1_eng.htm
Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.

I believe that some version of the zoo hypothesis is close to reality. They came. They saw. They tampered. They isolated. They moved on. Makes sense on several levels. Any intelligent species is going to want to protect its position in the cosmos. Other intelligent species are a threat. If they do nothing then they will have no control over what nature creates. Look at history, and especially religious history and you see evidence of them being here and messing around with us. They guided the course of Human development for a time. Hermetic scriptures almost come right out and say it (Discourse on the Eighth and the Ninth). Judeo/Christian texts say it. Hindu texts say it. Mandean, Manichean, Gnostic, Sumerian, on and on.

People record events that are significant. If something extraordinary occurs, people want to record the event so people later can see that it happened. So it makes perfect sense that it would show up in art.

Noah's ark was probably a scientific expedition to collect and transport animals via their DNA. Isn't that what a technologically advanced zoo keeper would do? Hey they are talking about this right now on TV, what a coincidence. :?:

I'm going to give my opinion pic for pic, because I believe the UFO bit is misintepertation of religious symbolism.

1 Holy Grail

2 Holy Grail

3 painting reference point (note how the alledged wings match the angle of the arches dips)

4 painting reference point (note how the alledged wings match the angle of the arches dips)

5 Ezekial's wheel 6 is a close up of the same

7 Indeterminable nees a larger picture could be mold for all I can see

8 Manna (or Communion Bread) from Heaven

9 Ezekial's wheel

As you will note ezekials Wheel shows up, not an Alien craft but to Medeval painter an easy to paint reference to messages from God, it a lot easier to paint than a seraphim

While many depictions can and probably do represent religious symbolism (yet no Christian denomination readily states aliens exist) not all fall under that category.

1 & 2 are actual recordings in history during a battle. The UFO's were spotted by both sides of the warring factions and recorded by both sides. 7, doubtful a painter would paint mold into any artwork. 8 is about snow, not food. Lastly, 6 And 9, as the whole story goes, Ezekiel was taken up into the wheel by the beings and was never seen from again. The rest could simply be religiously interpreted.

They've showed up in wars before. They even showed up WW II. Strange how we have Italian artists drawing paintings of aliens communicating with Jews. Where did they get that idea from? Seems like in pre-modern times god was commonly thought to be an alien and only recently did god become an ethereal supernatural being. Like I said, they came, they tampered. They can't have humans running all over the galaxy. The Romans just wanted to hang on to their collapsing system of oppression and enslavement and the Jewish religion was the most convenient one available.

The use of the "solar disk" (with or without rays proceeding from it) as representing God's power is not uncommon in ancient and medieval art. These two links may be of use to you

Nice post shadowcass..I do know about the Sun and its relationship to many mythologies.

I'd have to disagree that the "Baptism of Christ" is a sun god. Both John the Baptist AND Jesus Christ taught against such worshipping. So, whatever the circular disc is that is beaming down light on the figures of Christ and John the Baptist, the painter surely isn't trying to say it's a sun god of any kind.
