Fishing for Souls was produced during the Twelve Years’ Truce between the Calvinist Dutch Republic and the Catholic Southern Netherlands, controlled by Spain. From opposite sides of a river, Catholics and Protestants compete to save drowning souls, but whereas the austere Protestants fishing from the left bank take on passengers with ease, the Catholics, at right, are encumbered by their flashy icons, vestments and music. Above hangs a rainbow, symbolizing humankind’s reunification with God.
