Trouble in Vanity Fair

Chapter 12

Christian and Faithful come to Vanity Fair where all things meaningless are sold or given away, but as the pilgrims wore different clothes, spoke a different speech, and were not interested in the meaningless wares, they were singled out, beaten, thrown into a cage, and left to be made a display to those at the fair.  Next they are brought before Judge Hate Good and a Jury to answer for the tumult and discord they had caused in the town, in which witnesses are brought against Faithful; alas, the Jury finds him guilty and condemns him to death and, hence, is taken by the nearest way to the Celestial gate.  As for Christian, he escapes and continues on his way alone.
