Author: Luther, Martin, 1483-1546

Image Title: Noah’s Drunkenness

Scripture Reference:

Description: – Ham indicates the nakedness of his father, Noah, as his brothers, Shem and Japheth, guard their eyes while covering their father’s shame, a story that illustrates the commandment enjoining one to honor one’s father and mother. The vineyard grapes above Noah’s head allude to the drunken stupor into which Noah fell.
