Description/notes on Brenda Stumpf's piece titled Cost:
Watercolor, charcoal and plaster on paper

Eight to 10 million lives are estimated to be the cost of Christianizing Europe. Heresy arose many times over to confront the Church, whose clergy defamed all pagan and ancestral deities as demons. Some of these had been worshipped since the Neolithic age.
