EDITORS COMMENTS
This print, titled "Albigensian worshippers on the banks of the Rhone" takes us back to a tumultuous period in history. Created by an anonymous English School artist in the 19th century, this engraving is based on an illustration from James Aitken Wylie's renowned book, "The History of Protestantism" published in 1878. The scene depicted here transports us to Southern France during the 13th century when religious intolerance was at its peak. The Albigensians, a sect known for their anti-sacerdotal beliefs and opposition to the Roman Church, gather along the serene banks of the Rhone River. Despite their desperate circumstances and harsh conditions, these brave worshippers stand united against persecution. In this image, we witness families huddled together – men, women, and children alike – seeking solace amidst religious turmoil. A priest can be seen passionately preaching while monks observe from afar. This snapshot captures both defiance and suffering as these Albigensians face imminent danger due to their heretical beliefs. The historical significance of this print lies not only in its portrayal of religious dissent but also in shedding light on a dark chapter: the Albigensian crusade (1209-29) followed by ruthless Inquisition. Through this artwork, we are reminded of humanity's resilience even under oppressive circumstances. As we contemplate this powerful image captured by Bridgeman Images' collection today, let it serve as a reminder that
