Description: A heretic, again identified by a demon whispering in his ear, addresses an eager congregation. In the foreground, a pair of dogs fight. The Latin superscription reads, "The Devil, the parent and master of heretics" and the text below, "How do they create a sham, although they pour forth genuine prophecies? By the customary trickery of their Stygian Doctor and Father.".
