Procession of Sinners. The Last Judgement

Dionisy's frescoes. Procession of Sinners. The Last Judgement

To the left of the Judge and the prepared Throne are the sinners whose representation is based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew (Matthew 25:31-46): “ When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels…"
The sinners are depicted as representatives of peoples of other than Christian confession.
