Who did with her according to his vow, early-mid 19th century? Creator: Samuel Freeman Featured Print

Who did with her according to his vow, early-mid 19th century? Creator: Samuel Freeman

Who did with her according to his vow, early-mid 19th century? Biblical scene, from Judges 11:39: And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man [was a virgin]. And it was a custom in Israel, that each year the young women of Israel go out for four days to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite. The story of the Sacrifice of Jephthah's Daughter, or Jephthah's Tragic Vow. The judge Jephthah prepares to sacrifice his daughter in obedience to the oath he swore to sacrifice the first thing that came to greet him should he gain victory against the Ammonites. He raises the knife, a boy kneels holding a bowl for the blood, and a man holds the blindfolded girl's hands behind her. Engraving after a work of 1791 by John Opie

A Human Sacrifice in a Morai, in Otaheite; in the presence of Captain Cook, c1773

A Human Sacrifice in a Morai, in Otaheite; in the presence of Captain Cook, c1773. Captain James Cook and his officers watching a group of Tahitians chanting as a man and some pigs are prepared for sacrifice on the island of Otaheite (Tahiti). This is one of the events witnessed by Cook, the famed navigator and hydrographer, during the second of his three exploratory voyages to the Pacific region in 1772-1775 when they crossed latitude 70 degrees - the furthest south then reached by Europeans. These voyages transformed our knowledge of the region. From Story of the British Nation, Volume III, Walter Hutchinson. [London, c1920s]
