Catherine acted according to her Faith. Nowadays Catholic Church didn't change and would advise the same.


That's a really nice portrait! Do you know who it's by, lady?

This is a wonderful drawing of CoA, I have never seen it before! Where is it from originally, lady, it looks like an archival document of some sort?

The style looks Victorian, but I could be wrong.  I don't think it's contemporary, anyway.

It looks like the plate from an 1800's...probably late to early 1900's Book. This is from the Romantic Era of depiction usually Victorian Era as mentioned.

I don't think it's contemporary either. Besides the difference in style, the likeness is very difference than any of the contemporary portraits of CoA... But it it a rather nice portrait.

I've always liked the Victorian-styled portraits rather than the medieval ones, though both styles are unique in their own ways.

Sure it's victorian.
