1. Notes: 41 / 3 years ago  from ratak-monodosico (originally from voxlilium)
    ratak-monodosico:

Extracción de la piedra de la locura Hieronymus Bosch

“In Bosch’s day, the stone operation was a piece of quackery in which the patient was supposedly cured of his stupidity through the removal of the stone of folly from his forehead. Fortunately, it was performed only in fiction, not in fact, for in literary examples of this theme it generally left the patient worse off than before. The name “Lubbert”, on the other hand, frequently appears in Dutch literature to designate persons exhibiting an unusually high degree of human stupidity.”
