Judith showing the head of Holofernes Featured 20 Oct 2010 Image

Judith showing the head of Holofernes

Vintage engraving from the 1870 of a scene from the Old Testament by Gustave Dore showing Judith holding the head of Holofernes. In the Book of Judith Holofernes was an invading general of "Nebuchadnezzar". The general laid siege to Bethulia, commonly believed to be Meselieh, and the city almost surrendered. It was saved by Judith, a beautiful Hebrew widow who entered Holofernes's camp and seduced him. Judith then beheaded Holofernes while he was drunk. She returned to Bethulia with the disembodied head, and the Hebrews defeated the enemy
