The French text beneath the image reads:
"Ces ennemis du Ciel qui pechent mil fois/
Contre les Saincts Decrets et les divines Loix/
Font gloire mechamment de piller et d'abattre/
Les Temples du vray Dieu d'une main idolatre;/
Mais pour punition de les avoir brulez/
Ils font eux mesmes enfin aux flammes immolez.
"These enemies of Heaven who sin a thousand times
Against the Holy Decrees and the divine Laws
Maliciously plunder and slaughter
The Temples of the true God with idolatrous hands;
But for punishment of their burnings
They must sacrifice themselves to the flames."
(translated by Willoughby Thom, intern, summer 2022)
Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
