"Loth et ses filles" (see details) (see related A | B | C), 1651 Giovanni Fracesco Barbieri (known as Le Guerchin) (1591-1651) Louvre Museum, Paris, France
The Bible states (Genesis 19, 30-38) that God disapproved of the morals prevailing in Sodom. The city was to be incinerated. Only Lot and his family was to be lead away by angelic messengers. The wife of Lot was transformed into a pillar of salt for looking back at the annihilated city against the wishes of God. Later Lot was seduced by his daughters to engage in incest. The descendants became the Ammonites regarded as enemies of Israel.
