Autun Cathedral: Tympanum: Right Side

Tympanum: Right Side

Detail of the Last Judgment tympanum over the west door, sculpted by Gislebertus around 1130. In the main scene on the right side, St. Michael the Archangel is weighing the souls of the dead, tipping them in the right direction. On the other side of the scales, devils try to pull the scales the other way by hanging on them. On the far right, devils punish the damned. Above these scenes, Saint John and Saint James are seated in thrones.
