Ross - Thanks for posting these pictures. It's great to see them together.

It seems a lot of people were using card-games for political/religious analogies during the early 16th century. In addition to these pictures, plus Hugh Latimer and Martin Luther, we can probably even include the card-playing paintings of Lucas van Leyden (beginning in 1508).

Anybody know the story behind these pictures?
