A pencil sketch by Evan Hughes for the forthcoming “The Glory of Grace: The Story of the Canons of Dort” to depict the following text:
“By God’s grace the Inquisition did not destroy the Reformed church. In fact, many Dutch people began to help the Reformed cause by fighting against Roman Catholic Spain.
One such hero was the Prince of Orange, a wealthy nobleman named William the Silent. Under William’s leadership the Spaniards were slowly and painfully pushed back. William was greatly helped by the efforts of the Sea Beggars, a group of fierce sailors who freed several important towns and encouraged the Dutch people to fight for their freedom.
Spain was outraged by William’s success. In 1580 Philip declared William an outlaw, offering twenty-five thousand gold coins to the person who would turn him in, a reward he would have to pay four years later.”
