The Martyrdom of St John the Evangelist

From Apocalipsis cum Figuris (Apocalypse)

Illustrated by Albrecht Dürer



Dürer's The Martyrdom of St John the Evangelist depicts the attempted martyrdom of the Saint following the orders

of Emperor Domition and appears as the first illustration for Apocalipsis cum Figuris (Apocalypse) despite the fact

that the Book of Revelation contains no account of the episode.


Panofsky (The life and art of Albrecht Durer: Princeton University Press; 1945) notes a point of interest for this

illustration being that the block appears to have been among the final two prepared by Dürer.
