With Portrait of the Author

Scholars loved being portrayed with books. Books served as a status symbol exhibiting the erudition of the person portrayed. This set of sermons includes a portrait of the author, the humanist Alardus van Amsterdam (1491-1544), showing him with a book. This woodcut was made by Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen, as were the other woodcuts in this book.
