One last post today, and that finishes up the batch of translations that McMaster gave to me. This is another Biblical woodcut, obviously, but it’s not from Bel and the Dragon. This is a New Testament scene. The awkward, literal translation reads
From a boat, he teaches the crowds his parable, he who sows.
More gracefully, it reads
From a boat, he teaches the Parable of the Sower to the multitude.
Although the inscription says Mat 14, this is clearly an illustration of Matthew 13:1-9.
And that is that! After this I am back to tackling Herodotus. The next post may come tomorrow, but it will more likely be Tuesday.
