    Then there is a major study of the stemmas proposed for the text and illustrations and of the distinctively colourful and flat 'primitive' style of the Ulustrations.

    Anything critical of the Jews in the Bible is specifically said to have contemporary effect as a criticism of Christians, and particularly of monks and other religious, and a good deal of what is said about pagans is stated as meant as a criticism of Christians who worship their own interests more than God. Apringius of Beja from just a few centuries before him, Beatus' Commentary on the Apocalypse focuses on the sinless beauty of the eternal Church, and on the tares growing among the wheat in the Church on Earth. A short introduction places the manuscripts in their historical context and analyses the style of miniatures. They are both colourful and iconographically unusual, highlighting the isolation of the Asturian region from both Roman and Gaulish influences. For example, he compares evangelization to lighting fires for survival when caught far from home by a sudden mountain blizzard, and the Church to a Visigothic army with both generals and muleskinners. Including tables, and an appendix of all the inscriptions accompanying the illustrations, a complete bibliography, and exhaustive indexes, these beautiful volumes capture the artistic creativity of the Spanish people.
