George, No. 9122
A ranting, unkempt preacher bends in profile to the r. over a reading-desk on which lies an open book, to which he points. He stands on tiptoe, shouting "You'll all go to the Devil!!" He wears old-fashioned dress with clerical bands. Cf. No. 9121. Both sermons are quoted and both are on the dangers of pleasure, in contrasted terms, but "equally ridiculous in the eyes of true religion and philosophy" (pp. 130-2).

(from George, Vol. VII)

bibles; caricatures; cartoons; humor; religion; satire; social commentary; text
