From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
In Christianity as envisaged in the biblical Book of Revelation, the Last Judgement involves the ethical-judicial trial, judgement and punishment/reward of individual humans (assignment to heaven or to hell) by a divine tribunal at the end of time, following the destruction of humans' present earthly existence. This eschatology has spawned numerous artistic depictions.
The "Last Judgement" also appears as the "day of reckoning" or as "doomsday", and forms part of the "Last Things," the "end times," or end of the world. Compare the terminology last trump, Armageddon, apocalypse, and see also rapture.
