St. Paul Preaching at Ephesus – Le Sueur


Collections: Saints

Category: Male

Paul the apostle preaches in Ephesus in this art by Le Sueur. The burning of pagan books and manuscripts takes place in the foreground of the image. You'll notice the imposition of hands in the back-right as well as alms giving. On the left, some men appear to be engaging in fierce debate. 

 

And many of them that believed, came confessing and declaring their deeds. And many of them who had followed curious arts, brought together their books, and burnt them before all; and counting the price of them, they found the money to be fifty thousand pieces of silver. Acts 19:18-19
