indulgence 2
18x24 oil on linen

In Catholic theology, an indulgence is the full or partial remission of a temporal punishment due to sin which have already been forgiven. Indulgence = money for absolution.

Alleged abuses in the selling and granting indulgences were a major point of contention when Martin Luther initiated the Oritestant Reformation ( 1517 )
