Image Title: Man of Sorrows

Description: This image of Jesus depicts him as the “man of sorrows” (cf. Isaiah 53:3 and the history of its Christian interpretation), surrounded by the instruments of his suffering and death (e.g. spear, cross, hammer, die, scourge, crown of thorns). It is used as a title-page illustration for one of Luther’s sermons on the suffering of Christ (no biblical text is specified).
