This s a portrait of Kampen-born Albertus Pighius (1490-1542), a Catholic theologian who was called to Rome by the Dutch pope Adrian VI in 1522.
Pighius was certainly not a Lutheran preacher; on the contrary, he was and remained an ardent defender of the Catholic faith throughout his life. In the Protestant camp, therefore, the news of his death was received with cheers.
