The Christian church has embraced the visual arts, communicating theology, devotion, and missiology. Pictorial representations of Christ’s return have changed during the church’s history. Broader eschatology, particularly the millennium presented in Revelation 20, has influenced second advent artwork since the turn of the ninth century. During the medieval period, the church used vivid and fearful images of the Last Judgment to build church authority and communicate the necessity of prescribed good works. Martin Luther and his artists altered Catholic pictures to express their differentiated eschatology. Seventh-day Adventist eschatological art differs from that before it and reflects Adventist beliefs.
