Charles Haddon Spurgeon, British Baptist preacher, c1890.Artist: Cassell, Petter & Galpin

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, British Baptist preacher, c1890. Spurgeon (1834-1892) preached his first sermon at the age of sixteen, and quickly became known for his oratory skills. People from all walks of life would flock to hear him preach. In 1861 the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Newington opened. This had been specifically built for him, as the halls he preached in could not hold the numbers of people that came to listen. He was minister there until his death. He instigated the establishment of many institutions, such as a pastors' college founded at Camberwell in 1856, which transferred to the Metropolitan Tabernacle in 1861; and an orphanage founded in 1867 at Stockwell. A lithograph from The Modern Portrait Gallery, Cassell, Petter and Galpin, London, Paris and New York, c1890.

'Girolamo Savonarola', (1933). Creator: Unknown

'Girolamo Savonarola', (1933). Italian political and religious reformer Girolamo Savonarola (1452-1498) preaching in Florence. A Dominican priest, Savonarola preached against what he perceived as the depravity of the times and advocated a return to traditional Christian virtues. His followers in Florence made a 'bonfire of the vanities' and he maintained 'Rome will not quench these flames' (1496). Savonarola came increasingly into conflict with both the Church and political authorities. In 1497 he was excommunicated and the following year was tortured and hanged, after which his body was burned. From "Gestalten Der Weltgeschichte", a book of cigarette-card portrait miniatures of figures in world history from the last four hundred years. [Germany, 1933]
