Chapter Summary

This section of the book 'You Shall surely not Die': The Concepts of Sin and Death as Expressed in the Manuscript Art of Northwestern Europe, c. 800-1200 contains a list of illustrations. Some of the illustrations include Rome, San Paolo Fuori le Mura, San Paolo Bible, f. 8v, London, BL, Ms. Cotton Tiberius, C.VI, f. 14r, Anzy-le-Duc, Priory entrance, and St. Savin, Abbey Church, ceiling, nave. Mankind has always sought ways to avoid death: in almost every society there has been a belief that man was made for a happy, pain-free and eternal existence, and that something occurred to prevent man fulfilling this destiny. In the Judeo-Christian tradition that has shaped so much of western thought and culture, man sinned against God and thereby proved himself unworthy of this perfect existence.

Keywords: death; Judeo-Christian tradition; sin
