The mid-seventeenth-century frescoes at the Trinity Cathedral, Trinity Danilov Monastery in Pereslavl-Zalesskii, are among the major works of late medieval Russian monumental art. Of special interest is the cycle portraying elements from the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation. Painted at a time of great turbulence in the Russian Church and in Russian society, these frescoes join other cycles of the period in depicting a general cataclysm.
