Chapter Summary

It is immediately clear, from its title and its central scene, that the allegorical print The True Chariot of Peace of the Dominicans with the Broken Garbage Cart of the Colleri and Vossians again presents the conflict in the Lutheran Church of Amsterdam. We see a very crowded scene. At the extreme right of the print are the invitingly open doors of the Round Lutheran Church, with its large panelled fanlight and the superscript 'Let us enter the House of the Lord'. The upper and lower third of the image are interpreted as representations of 'the scum of the Lutheran consistory', whereas the Chariot of Peace and the group of men welcoming it at the church doors represent 'the true church'. Most later historiography on this episode considers the eventual victory of the Dutch school as almost a foregone conclusion, a natural outcome in the march of progress.
