I Call BS
I'm willing to bet the ink wasn't even dry on this 'newly discovered' book.

How many 500 year old non-doom books are newly discovered. Doesn't happen.
And for around 100$ you can buy your own copy of this newly discoved book. www.amazon.com...

Yes, they had colorful paint in the 1500's.

The whole purpose of a book is to protect it's contents, there are many examples of medieval manuscripts that have survived intact. I assume that this book was from a private collection and stored correctly before being rediscovered. Very nice.

That is probably a book copied from this "original." Nonetheless, it makes me wonder if The Telegraph bought it to write their story.

EDIT: They even advertise it as being for sale at the end of this article...from "Telegraph Books."

this makes me so curious, we talk about these natural phenomenon on the forum



“In the land of the Romans in the year 73 B.C., a golden ball was seen in the sky, which then came down to the Earth and rolled about and flew back up into the air again, in the direction of the rising sun, so that its great size covered up the sun completely. This was followed by the great Roman war.”




There was a topic resentfully about Orbs of light being precursors to earthquakes


Another possible explanation was that it was a meteorite that travelled through the earth's atmosphere at a low trajectory. That has been known to happen in the past. The Grand Teton near miss is an example. This meteorite flew through Earth's atmosphere coming in as low as 35km to the ground:

Extremely interesting. am gonna get me a copy read it carefully, and I'll be back when i form a clear idea about it.

in classic fantasy apocalypse scenario,
i prefer world domination by an evil overlord with superhuman powers, who suddenly appear with his armies and put all superpower countries to shame.

i do not like aliens.. not fun.. their technology should be too powerful,
and humans would have excuse to their defeat… blaming their mediocrity.

it's more fun seeing magic/sword/shield/mythril scale dragons defeating tanks/jet fighters/rockets/firearms than seeing giant laser beam from the sky wiping out cities.

ok i have to stop my imagination for today

but i really like this thread, it skyrockets the 'childlike spirit' within me


peace.

The artist simply read the book of Revelation, and decided to paint a literal interpretation of it.

What a wonderful find!! There are likely many manuscripts still hidden in basements of museums and in the homes of collectors. There are plenty of Apocalypse Books already discovered. I have read Revelation many many times and I have never seen nor heard of anything like the Tiber Monster. When I have more time I will follow these links. Great find!

Makes me think of the 4-14-1561 Hans Glaser woodcut from 1566 of the 1561 event over Nuremberg.

Also The Lost Book of Nostradamus

...what do you mean by her, seriously don't know ?
...

Taking your statement at face value...
The three pic's you posted...

The bottom right (ROMA CAPVT-MVNDI) picture appears to depict a female in the general region where genitalia might be found... (not that I was looking)
If you were not being serious (!) - please excuse the explicity...

In Angers Frances the large Castle has a whole set of tapestries called the apocalypse. There are fifty or so tapestries that are ten by ten feet or larger in size. I think the apocalypse has always been something people talked about and worried about. Especially when diseases were ramped and people died younger and more often.
