Antichrist and Judgment Day: The Middle French Jour Du Jugement

Richard Kenneth Emmerson, Martin Stevens, Stephen Wright, Keith Glaeske
Pegasus Press, 1998 - 109 pages
"Translated for the first time into English, the 14th-century French play Jour du Jugement is the most fully-developed account of the career of Antichrist in any dramatic form. This fascinating theatrical extravaganza stages two of the most important events in Christian eschatology: the appearance, deception, and persecution of the Antichrist, and the Last Judgement. The introduction discusses theological backgrounds, literary analogues, and staging issues. Substantial commentary explicates socio-historical allusions and biblical references, suggests performance effects, and describes what is known of accompanying music."
