Dublin Apocalypse, folio 4v

Early 14th century

The Library of Trinity College Dublin

The Library of Trinity College Dublin

The Latin text is the Apocalypse (Book of Revelations) of the New Testament and the Meditations of St Bernard. Each page features a picture or miniature in colour and gold. The leaves have been marked with roman numerals so we know that just one leaf from the beginning of the manuscript is missing, meaning 73 out of 75 miniatures remain intact. The miniature pictured in folio 4v depicts the fourth horseman of the apocalypse.
