Chapter Summary

In the prints The Garbage Cart of some Martinists, or the Ungrateful Triumphalist and The Triumphal Chariot of Peace the cart is a little horse drawn affair, high on its two wheels, entirely covered to hide the unwholesome contents from sight, and to contain the worst of the smell. With one single exception, all prints show a minister on some sort of wheeled transport and the wide-open door of the New Church, one of the two Lutheran places of worship in Amsterdam. This chapter argues that these two elements stand for two aspects of a crisis within the Lutheran community in Amsterdam. The first was a conflict within the lay elite over the relations between the Lutherans and the Reformed environment in which they found themselves. The second was a conflict between successive waves of immigrants.
