Wow. I like this Anglo-French Enlightenment inspired cartoon from 1890:
Talk about push-back to Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress! “Freethought Road” takes you past a secular schoolhouse and Investigation, Reason, Education, Humanity, Justice, Science, Virtue, Love, and Liberty, with “Truth” shining at a summit.
Along the “Orthodox Route,” this “vale of tears” passes a church and is accompanied by Faith, Hypocrisy, Ignorance, Cruelty, Superstition, Fraud, and Decay, with “Death” awaiting your arrival in a shadowy gorge.
