The hypocritical Priest, Miniature only Paradiso, Canto XXIX. Heaven of the Primum Mobile. Beatrice's diatribe against modern preachers, who indulge their fancies instead of preaching orthodox doctrine. A friar, preaching, faces his congregation who are unable to see the devil monk nestling in his hood. The fattened pig, held by the farmer, is a symbol of greed. Image taken from Divine Comedy. Originally published in Italy Tuscany; circa 1450. Author Dante Alighieri, Illustrated by Diovanni di Paolo.
