Cardeña Beatus

f. 48v, The message to the Church of Pergamum


Back

Unlike the rest of the Churches which are always shown in a landscape layout, that of Pergamum is structured vertically with the Church below and St John and the angel above, an arrangement reproduced faithfully in the Manchester Beatus (f. 64v).
