Links

Christendom Destroyed relies for some of its visual dynamics on references to contemporary paintings and images. These are difficult to describe adequately in the text, and especially within the confined space of a general history. I have therefore regrouped here the links to web illustrations of the works to which I make reference. The references are stacked by chapter and page number in the UK edition.
