Luther, while a monk in the convent at Erfurt, was laid upon the sickbed, and to his bodily sufferings were added the doubts and strivings of his soul. An old brother, his confessor, endeavored to comfort him by referring him to the forgiveness of sins through faith in Christ, and this doctrine, at that period almost forgotten, brought light to Luther's soul, and filled his spirit with new courage. The interview here represented with such a masterly hand, is one of such spiritual communion. The fine and energetic head of Luther, in whose features, pale and emaciated by mental and bodily anquish, despair is giving way to hope, is most powerful, while the mild benevolent countenance of the old monk, tells us of the peace that has entered his soul through the blessed doctrine he is preaching to his suffering brother.
