The Apocalypse and Religious Propaganda: Illustrations by Albrecht Dürer and Lucas Cranach The Elder

Hartmann, Denise Alexandra (University of Toronto)

Marginalia, Vol. 11, (October 2010)

Abstract

Apocalypse imagery was highly sought after in Germany during the 14th and 15th centuries, attributable to the millenialist belief that the world was coming to an end in the year 1500. This Christian conviction was supported by the reality that Germany experienced social unrest, such as peasant revolts, famine and church criticism towards the end of the 15th century. These events were inter- preted as signs that the Apocalypse was imminent. Consequently, apocalyptic imagery prepared its viewers for the end of the world.
