the Church of St Mary: Last Judgment

Last Judgment

The Last Judgment or Doom in the southwest corner of the chancel. At the top Jesus sits on a rainbow and displays his wounds. On the left, Mary kneels in supplication on behalf of the world. To her left, an angel flies down the side of the window and blows a trumpet. Below are two tiers of the dead rising from their graves, among them a pope (top center), bishops, monks, ladies and men. Chalgrove Church, Oxfordshire, England.
