The paper begins with a general overview of the meaning of religion in Michelangelo's art and then moves its focus to the panel of the Drunkenness of Noah. It explains the basic story that this piece hopes to capture and compares how this Biblical story differs in a way to what is portrayed in the picture.
From the Paper:"Michelangelo's frescoes for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel are regarded by nearly all art historians as being amongst the most significant and most lovely -- of all works of art created in the West since the beginning of the Christian era. It is no doubt because of their artistic importance that it is easy to overlook their religious significance, for while the religions stories that Michelangelo gave vision to are well known and in no way original to the artist, the images were overwhelmingly original. We cannot fail to be impressed by their beauty when we look at them and so we may forget to see what is actually contained in them."
