Church militant and church triumphant
The church militant comprises Christians who are living; the church triumphant comprises those who are in Heaven. The church militant enforces strict military regulations against killing noncombatants and prisoners, holding the conversion, and baptism of infidels among the highest of priorities. Roman Catholic theology adds a third category: the church suffering, that is, those in Purgatory.
A fresco named Church militant and church triumphant covers the Southern wall of the Spaniards' Chapel of the Dominican Cloister connected to the Gothic church.
