Educated by Tara Westover

Judith Beheading Holofernes  by Caravaggio ca. 1600
I'm reading Educated by Tara Westover. It is phenomenal.

This painting (Judith Beheading Holofernes, above) gets mentioned twice. The first time is in Chapter 18 on page 162 during an exam in Western Civ at BYU:

The second time is in chapter 31, bottom of page 268, when she is in Rome:
"At the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, I stood before Caravaggio's Judith Beheading Holofernes  and did not once think about chickens."
 Caravaggio has appeared here before.
