Titian. Religion Succored by Spain.
Religion Succored by Spain. The kneeling woman holding the chalice and cross is a personification of Religion being attacked by the serpents of Unbelief. From the left, though, the personification of Spain is approaching to assist Religion. The painting is alluding to the leading role that Spain played in the wars of religion. At the same time, the background commemorates the victory of the Christian fleet over the Turks in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571
