Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry

Folio 64, verso: The Fall of the Rebel Angels
Object type Illumination
Français : Le Seigneur, assis sur un trône, domine la scène. Il tient le globe de sa main gauche et, de sa main droite, indique le jugement de Lucifer. Les anges fidèles se tiennent à ses côtés, assis dans des stalles que les anges révoltés ont laissées vides. La milice de Dieu, bardée de casques et de cuirasses et armée d'épées, précipite les anges rebelles dans l'abîme. Lucifer est représenté tout en bas, entouré d'un halo formant comme une anti-auréole, mais toujours pourvu de ses attributs d'ange, la couronne et l'étole.
English: This picture shows God sitting on his throne surrounded by Seraphs and all of the disrespectful Angels out of thier regular order of ranks out of Heaven and into the firery chaos of Hell.
