The apocalypse was an inspiration to many artists through the ages. This collection is meant to give an idea of how this theme has been approached at different times by different artists. Modern artists are closer to us and can help to find a path back to an understanding of the iconography of medieval illustrations. The gallery currently only contains themes from the Revelation. But other sections, for example concerning the Book of Daniel, will follow.

In the context of this site, the gallery should be understood as visual aid for the understanding of the imagery used within the apocalyptic texts.

If you would like to wander around, just choose a category that interests you on the left. Then click on the thumbnail of your choice for the large version of the picture.

I would appreciate any picture you might wish to contribute, or any suggestion of what I should try to find.
