-In art, the Last Judgment is a common theme in medieval and renaissance religious iconography. Like most early iconographic innovations, its origins stem from [[Byzantium]]. In Western Christianity, it is often the subject depicted on the central [[Pediment|tympanum]] of medieval cathedrals and churches, or as the central section of a [[triptych]], flanked by depictions of [[heaven]] and [[hell]] to the left and right, respectively (heaven being to the viewer's left, but to the Christ figure's right). 
-The most famous Renaissance depiction is [[Michelangelo Buonarroti]]'s [[The Last Judgment (Michelangelo)|''The Last Judgment'']] in the [[Sistine Chapel]]. Included in this fresco is his self portrait, as [[Bartholomew|St. Bartholomew]]'s [[flaying|flayed]] skin.
