In that window was now the picture of God the Father, and of Christ, besides a large crucifix, and the picture of the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove, and of the twelve apostles. And in that window were seven large pictures of the Virgin Mary, in seven...
Seite 51 - ... refinement upon cruelty, obliged the survivors to cast lots, and the tenth person only was suffered to remain alive. Thus perished nearly 8,000 persons ; and the few who escaped were carried captives to the Danish camp at Greenwich.

The greater part of the city was, on this occasion, burnt to ashes, together with the cathedral to its bare...
