    Forgot the name and author,sorry, but I do recall reading years ago an SF / fantasy novel about a far future astronaut crew landing inside a Bosch triptych painting and literally going through his Paradise, Hell & Heaven…

    Whenever I see this painting, I can’t help but think of William Blake’s “The Garden of Love”

    I went to the Garden of Love,
    And saw what I never had seen:
    A Chapel was built in the midst,
    Where I used to play on the green.

    And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
    And Thou shalt not. writ over the door;
    So I turn’d to the Garden of Love,
    That so many sweet flowers bore.

    And I saw it was filled with graves,
    And tomb-stones where flowers should be:
    And Priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,
    And binding with briars, my joys & desires.
