Here are a few images I particularly liked from the Navarre Picture Bible, created in Pamplona, Spain in 1197. The manuscript is held at Bibliothèque d’Amiens Métropole, but you can see the rest of it online here:

Of course, my favorite part of the Bible is Revelations. Visions of the apocalypse are always pretty spectacular, and this is no exception (see the “Hell Mouth”)!
