Veridicus Christianus[1] is a Jesuit emblem book by Jan David, published by the Plantin Press in Antwerp in 1601.

According to Stuart Heath, the engravings are from the studio of Philip Galle, and probably executed by Philips’ son Theodoor Galle, although Stuart Clark attributes them to Cornelius Galle.

It features the woodcut Adspectus Incauti Dispendium.
