How Far Piety Obscures.  In later centuries the great man is credited with all the great qualities and virtues of his century.  Thus all that is best is continually obscured by piety, which treats the picture as a sacred one, to be surrounded with all manner of votive offerings.  In the end the picture is completely veiled and covered by the offerings, and thenceforth is more an object of faith than of contemplation.
