Description: This hand-colored, allegorical title-page woodcut gathers many biblical scenes (Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden; the giving of the Law to Moses; the worship of the golden calf and Baal; the crucifixion of Jesus; and the wolves feeding on God’s flock) but focuses on Paul’s prediction 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 (lower right) that the man of lawlessness will take his seat in the temple (“Er wirt sitze im te[m]pel. / 2 Thess 2), proclaiming himself to be God and deceiving many before he is slain by Jesus Christ.
