Last Judgement

The Bible asserts that at the end of the world Christ will come again to judge humanity, separating out the good and the evil. This is called the Last Judgement. The dead will be resurrected and the good will go to Heaven and the evil to Hell.

There are many images of this subject, which show Christ either enthroned, accompanied by disciples and saints, with the good and evil people depicted on his right and left respectively, or with Heaven around him and Hell below.
