The Angel Binding Satan (c. 1797) – by Philip James de Loutherbourg

Revelation 20:1-3 [Latin]

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.


Et vidi angelum, composed by Marco Galvani (b. 1994)
