Summary

Cartoon shows Pope Pius VII, Cardinal Caprara, and other members of the clergy seeking to receive the spirit of light from the beneficial rays emanating from a dove at top center, parting the dark clouds of ignorance and intolerance; at top right, Jesus sits holding a crown of roses and extending palm fronds to the Virgin Mary, with a nun at her side; on the left, women revolutionaries are struck by bolts of lightning issuing from a shield held by an archangel; at bottom left, a fiery pit claims other revolutionaries, while on the right, a group of new believers prays.
