15x30 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 )

I see it as a series ? It speaks to me in that way ? To me I can't put everything I have to say or that I want to think about wirh this subject in to one painting , there are in fact 4 of them so far, and I plan on doing many many more.
