Revelation 20:10 - 12 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.One of four missing pages from the "Augsburg Wunderzeichenbuch", previously with Day & Faber and now in a Private Collection, New York.For a full description of the book please see the EXHIBITIONS page on this website.
