Biblical siege from Ezekial. Illuminated manuscript miniature from the 15th-century Alba Bible, depicting a watchman sounding the trumpet to warn of an approaching army (The Book of Ezekial). The visions of the prophet Ezekial included the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar II in 587 BC. The Alba Bible, completed in 1430, is a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Medieval Castilian. It was commissioned in 1422. The 513 pages are illustrated with 334 miniatures, produced by members of the Franciscan Order in Toledo. The original is displayed in Madrid, Spain.
