Research project: Bound to the Column: Antichrist Iconography in the Last Judgment Scenes in the Medieval Kingdom of Hungary

My project aims to investigate the relationship between visual culture and theological disputes during the pre-Hussite and Hussite eras. By looking at 14th-century Last Judgment scenes from the Hungarian Kingdom that contain an image of a demon bound to the column inside Leviathan’s jaws, I plan to analyse the connections between this figure and the escahtological and Antichrist centered discourse used by both Church representatives and preachers of the reformation in Bohemia.
