The Orvieto Last Judgment Reliefs

14th century
Stone relief
West façade, Orvieto Cathedral

In the bottom left the dead are resurrected for the final judgment and the righteous await their entrance into Heaven. In the bottom right the unrighteous are packed off to Hell. The prayers of the people in the next register up perhaps signify their status in Purgatory. In the top register Christ sits enthroned in a mandorla formed of the heads of angels. He is flanked by two sets of twelve men – perhaps the twenty four elders of Revelation 4:10. In the register below him are souls in Heaven.
