Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.7 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, lxiii:1.)--'Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.' We give a picture of Naples, a Christian city built upon the foundations of a heathen city, to illustrate this 63rd chapter of Isaiah. This chapter was written 2594 years ago, but Christ, to whom reference is made in this prophecy, has gradually changed the character of civilization. Where heathen temples once stood now stand Christian churches. Where men once sacrificed to idols, they now bring themselves willing sacrifices to the Lord Jesus Christ. Where once stood cities consecrated to pagan rights and given up to blindness, there now stand Christian cities regulated by humane laws, and moving in the great open ways disclosed by the life and spirit of Jesus Christ."
