Chapel of San Brizio.
This chapel was a fifteenth-century addition to the cathedral. The construction of this chapel (also known as the Cappella Nuova and Signorelli chapel) was started in 1408 and completed in 1444.
The Damned are taken to Hell and received by Demons is in stark contrast to the previous one. Signorelli has gone to the extremes of his fantasy and evocative powers to portray his cataclysmic vision of the horrible fate, the agony and the despair of the damned. He uses the naked human body as his only expressive element, showing the isolated bodies entangling each other, merging in a convoluted mass. They are overpowered by demons in near-human form, depicted in colours of every shade of decomposing flesh. Above them, a flying demon transports a woman. This is probably a depiction of the Whore of the Apocalypse.

Me interesé por la Puta del Apocalipsis, porque escribiste mayúsculas y eso me dio a entender que correspondería un personaje público y, ciertamente, me encuentro con que la llamaban la Ramera de Babilonia, que aparece en el libro del Apocalipsis. Qué mural tan terrorífico y al tiempo paradigma de la persecución religiosa en aquellos oscuros tiempos.

Belle capture de ces fresques ! La scène du bas est terrifiante et démontre parfaitement la cruauté de l'homme même si ici elle est représentée par des démons ! L'argument redoutable des religieux à une époque ou l'ignorance leur donnait cette liberté ! On pourrait comparer cette scène aux camps de la mort des nazis ou plus près de nous par des génocides ici où là !
Cependant je reste fasciné par le talent de l'artiste !
Passes une bonne journée, Annemarie !

A beautiful example of a Doom. Paintings when their betters ruled people with religious carrots and sticks. Religion is not the tool now but otherwise nothing has changed. And at least with religion beautiful objects and music were created
