Separated by a column in the center of the image, on the left we see an appropriate religious service of the new doctrine. Martin Luther receives the words of the Trinity via a divine beam and passes them on to his congregation from the pulpit. Standing in front of all of them is the Protestant sovereign prince, who, tilting his head back, is listening intensely to the Reformer. A baptism and the giving of the Communion in both forms and to both sexes illustrate the Protestant faith and liturgy. On the other side, by contrast, greed and disorder reign. A devil is whispering nonsense into the ear of a fat preaching monk. Others are shown carrying the goods collected to the table for gifts and indulgences to the pope, who is guarding his treasures rather than participating in the service.
