The Bible's last book has been a controversial work since the early centuries of Christianity.

It is particularly interesting to compare Beatus' creation with this work, which has similar features regarding general layout, but was produced in a different cultural environment from a geographical, artistic and chronological point of view.

This manuscript was written around 1250 AD, and it probably presents the oldest insular Commentary on the Apocalypse.

The manuscript is on parchment and illustrated with 90 miniatures of exceptional quality, attributed to an excellent illuminator of the time, who went under the name of Master of Sarum, a Latin name which indicates the Salisbury of today.

Indeed, this work is an example of the highest level of artistic creativity that prevailed in the British Isles in the mid-13th century.
