It manifest the same longing that has informed every rebellion of the enslaved, from Spartacus to the Peasant Revolt of 381, and many others everywhere on this planet where and when men and women have dared to hope.
In this painting the chain binding them was the policy of forced ignorance of the gospels, and their symbolic stoning tell us of the fear and hatred that the enforcer of that policy had incurred .
