The Portal of the Last Judgement is the west façade’s central portal, which was built in the 1220s-1230s, just after the façade’s other two portals. It represents the Last Judgement as described in the Gospel of Saint Matthew.

On the lower lintel, the dead are being resuscitated from their tombs. Just above that, on the upper lintel, the archangel Michael is weighing their souls according to the lives they led on earth and the love they showed to God and to men. The chosen people are led to the left towards Heaven (to Christ’s right) and the condemned are lead to the right, to hell, by a devil.

    Nicely depicted David. The beauty and fortitude of these antique edifices never ceases to amaze me :)
