Single Leaf from a 'Biblia Pauperum': Christ Carrying the Cross, c. 1410

Unknown

Single Leaf from a "Biblia Pauperum": Christ Carrying the Cross (verso), c. 1410. Also known as the "Poor Men's Bible," the Biblia Pauperum was a simple picture book used to explain biblical prophecies and symbolism. These volumes served as an aid for preachers to demonstrate the unity of the Bible. The iconography of these popular books juxtaposed two Old Testament scenes with one from the life of Christ. In this example, the image of Christ carrying the cross is inserted between Abraham and Isaac on the way to sacrifice (on the left) and Elijah with the idow of Zarephath (right). It appeared first in manuscript form in the 1200s, became a popular picture book with miniatures in the 1300s, and after 1450 it emerged as a print book with woodcuts.
