Ecclesia Christi Trivmphans
Landscape with the Faith, behind her the cross. She holds a palm branch in one hand, in the other hand the reins of the bit by which she conquers the heresy. Heresy is trampled by Faith. She sprawls on the floor amidst worldly symbols. On the left in the background a man is picking grapes in a field with vines. On the right in the background a field with ears of corn. Above the air a tetragram, symbol of God the Father. In the margins a six-line caption, in two columns, in Latin.
