Antichrist and Judgment Day

Details

Translated for the first time into English, the 14th century French play Jour du Jugement is a fascinating theatrical extravaganza, staging two of the most important events in Christian eschatology: the appearance, deception and persecution of Antichrist; and the Last Judgement. It is the most fully developed account of the career of Antichrist in any dramatic form, introduced by a discussion of the theological backgrounds, literary analogues and staging issues. Substantial commentary explicates socio-historical allusions and Biblical references, suggests performance effects and describes what is known of accompanying music.
