The destruction of Gog and Magog; evil forces dressed as Turks in the foreground have been let loose after the beast's one thousand years of imprisonment, fire issuing from the clouds above is devouring the troups, who have been attacking 'the beloved city' here interpreted as Vienna with St Stephen and St. Maria am Gestade. Clipping from the Lübeck Bible. c.1530-34 Woodcut
