Close up of one more of Virgil Solis’ illustrations from the 1588 Luther Bible printed by Martin Lechler: The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10), in which a despised Samaritan is the one who stops to help a man in distress after a couple of religiously pious folks had passed him by. Here the Good Samaritan is portrayed as a 16th c. Turk (note the turban). 16th c. Turks were seen as pretty dangerous and threatening folks by 16th c. Europeans. Note Martin Luther’s hymn text (since revised in contemporary hymnals): Lord, keep us in Thy Word and work,/ Restrain the murd'rous Pope and Turk,/ Who fain would tear from off Thy throne/ Christ Jesus, Thy beloved Son. So – the equivalent of this illustration today might be to portray the Good Samaritan as a member of the Taliban. #hekmanlibrary #goodsamaritan #lutherbible #calvincollege

From a map in a 1717 edition of Virgil’s Aeneid, published in Leeuwarden by Franciscus Halma. Naves, quae forte paratae, corripiunt onerantque auro. Portantur avari Pygmalionis opes pelago ; dux femina facti (Ships, which by chance were ready, they seize and load with gold; the wealth of grasping Pygmalion is borne overseas, the leader of the enterprise a woman). Note the seven mouths of the river Nile at bottom (septem gemini ostia nili). #hekmanlibrary #calvincollege #aeneid #virgil
