Thomas Companella…

*

A renaissance artist who achieved fame

and fortune by articulating the religious

doctrines of his mistress, a wealthy

Florentine dedicated to the church.

*

At the height of his fame a schism betwixt the

two developed with Companella proclaiming

the ascendency of nature’s rule while his mistress

held to the purer geometric forms of God.

*

In order that his most famous work, a depiction of

Christ on the cross, be seen the municipal art gallery

displaying it had, everyday, to reconstruct its production

from start to finish to the accompaniment of music.

*

This operatic endeavour became a wonder of

the artistic and ecclesiastical worlds though it did

little to reconcile the now bitterly feuding couple.

*

Toward the end of his career a reconciliation of

sorts was achieved when the couple sorted out their

differences by correspondence and agreed to meet.

*

Both were killed in freak accidents on the

way to their designated meeting place after

following the agreed instructions to the letter.
