There are three ways that individuals who are oppressed can deal with their oppression. one of them is to rise up against their oppressors with physical violence and corroding hatred. but oh this isn’t the way. violence creates many more social problems than it solves. another way is to acquiesce and to give in, to resign yourself to the oppression. but that too isn’t the way, because non-cooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good.

but there is another way. and that is to organize mass non violent resistance based on the principle of love. where there is something about hate that tears down and is destructive, there is something about love that builds up and is creative. love is the only creative, redemptive, transforming power in the universe.

when you rise to the level of love, of its great beauty and power, you seek only to defeat evil systems. individuals who happen to be caught up in that system, you love, but you seek to defeat the system. you just keep loving people, even though they’re mistreating you. just keep being friendly to that person. i’m foolish enough to believe that through the power of this love, somewhere men of the most recalcitrant bent will be transformed.

The Resurrection, from the Small Passion

Albrecht Dürer (German, 1471-1528)

originally printed 1510, but this is a later and much weakened impression, perhaps 17th century

Woodcut, from a series

12.6 x 9.7 cm, verso blank

Acquired March 2009 from Sanders of Oxford, ex. coll. Christopher Lennox-Boyd

Small portions missing from lower left edge and top left and right corners; the first is reinforced using a piece from another print, while the top right corner is reinforced with a piece of paper, with the lines on the right of the artist’s monogram redrawn. Comparison with other impressions in the British Museum (where the original wood block is housed) reveal that this one is from Dürer’s block. As curator Giulia Bartrum put it, it’s at least the “shadow of a Dürer!” Ref. Meder 158
