The Apocalypse of 1313

Signed and dated in 1313 by its illuminator, Colin Chadelve, this Apocalypse is a unique creation apparently designed to cater for its patron's demanding requirements. The images in this manuscript are extraordinary in terms of both their abundance and the quality of their pictorial technique. This codex features the longest iconographic cycle of the Book of Revelation of the entire Middle Ages.

The radiant colours, contrasting gold hues and lavish illustrations of the Apocalypse and Hell also transform this codex into a unique treasure.

Today's privileged readers can observe the merciless punishments meted out to the damned in Hell thanks to the wealth of details in the artist's representations of the most horrific and surprising tortures.
