Antichrist imagery in Anglo-French illustrated Apocalypses from the thirteenth to the fourteenth century
Keywords:Apocalypse, Iconography, Antichrist, Illumination, Anglo-french manuscripts
The analysis of Antichrist imagery in Anglo-French Apocalypse manuscripts from the thirteenth to the fourteenth century shows the power of visual exegesis in medieval apocalyptic tradition. Based on Berengaudus’ commentary, such imagery presents Antichrist either as a beast or as a human figure, revealing how the medieval world envisioned the final opponent of Christ.
