Christian on his way to Legality's house
Illustrated by Frank C Papé
This extraordinarily powerful illustration from Frank C Papé was the basis of one of the colour plates appearing
in the 1910 Edition of Paul Bunyan's classic, The Pilgrim's Progress.
The Pilgrim's Progress is a Christian allegory written by John Bunyan (it was first published in 1678). The tale's
central protagonist is, fittingly, named Christian, and Bunyan takes the read on Christian journey from his home,
styled the "City of Destruction" (representing earthly existence) to the "Celestial City" (representing Heaven) atop
This illustration is associated with the following text from The Pilgrim's Progress:
