The Apocalypse of Lorraine is a stunning example of the illustrated Christian biblical books of the Apocalypse produced in Gothic France. Probably made in Metz in the early fourteenth century, the luxuriously decorated manuscript, also known as the Dresden Apocalypse, contains both the biblical text and an anonymous commentary in French. Although the vernacular translation and commentary would have appealed to the laity, the manuscript was possibly created for a clerical patron, Rainald von Bar, Bishop of Metz. Its seventy-two framed miniatures feature bold colors and gold leaf characteristic of Gothic illumination.
