Understanding the Last Judgement
The traditional icon of the last judgement is a very complex image which is both the synthesis of Christian typology as well as an image of the eschatological finality of all things. It is basically an image of the structure of reality.
All the elements of the icon are analyzed in light of the structure of being and how we participate in its unfolding.
The image interpreted was painted by fr. Luke Dingman and can be purchased at Orthodox Images: www.orthodoximages.com/feasts_other.html
The talk was given as St-john Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church in Seattle.
