What People are Saying About This

Béla Zsolt Szakács

'John-Paul Himka's book is a groundbreaking study of Last Judgment representations in the late medieval and early modern icons of the Carpathian region. No previous work has collected such rich material or analyzed the development and changes of this iconography in such a detailed way. The many illustrations render the text easy to follow and will appeal to art lovers. Last Judgment Iconography in the Carpathians is an important exploration of a new world.'
