Hours of Catherine of Cleves, The Netherlands, Utrecht, ca. 1440. (The Morgan Library and Museum)
Here we can see an angel and the devil fighting over a deceased man’s Book of life, where all of his good and bad deeds have been written (so they are basically fighting for his soul).
Another interesting detail is that this is how many people were buried at the time. Not in a coffin, but wrapped in a shroud.
