The Parable of Dives
and Lazarus

Christ tells the story of the beggar Lazarus who during his life lay begging at the gate of the rich man Dives. After they both died, Lazarus goes to heaven with Abraham and Dives to hell. Then Dives asked Abraham in heaven to send Lazarus to him in hell with water to cool his tongue. But Abraham said this was impossible because an impassable gulf was fixed between them. This painting belongs to St. Mary of the Woods College in Terra Haute, Indiana.
