Image Title: Six Sins Against the Holy Spirit

Description: This image is dominated by a large central image of a dove, representing the Holy Spirit, with rays of light emanating from it. Six men, each representing a sin against the Holy Spirit turn away from the dove and hide their faces from the light. The Latin superscription reads, "Six sins against the Holy Spirit," and the text below, "Why is it said there are sins committed against the Holy Spirit? The enemies of the divine set their faces against goodness.".
