The Berlin Codex, produced in the first half of the twelfth century, is one of only two manuscripts known to have been produced in Italy of Beatus of Liébana's commentary on the Christian biblical book of the Apocalypse. The commentary text was likely copied from an Iberian model. The imagery, however, diverges from the Spanish tradition and instead seems to follow earlier Italian Apocalypse iconography. The fifty-five images, in the Italo-Byzantine style, are mostly unframed line drawings set within the text column and tinted with pale shades of yellow, brown, and some red.
