Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xiv:12.)--It is almost impossible for us
to understand in our time what great obstacles the early disciples had to overcome in preaching the gospel. We can get some
idea of the tremendous hold the heathen gods had upon the popular imagination of the time, by considering the magnitude and
splendor of the temples erected in their honor and for their worship. We have in the above picture three columns, one fallen
and two standing, which formed a part of the temple of Jupiter Olympus. There were more than a hundred of these splendid Corinthian
columns in the original temple. The preaching of St. Paul and of others, however, displaced the heathen gods, and now their
temples everywhere are in ruins, while Christianity is taking the world."
Two large standing (and one fallen ) Corinthian columns are in the foreground; a temple is on a hill in the background
