I grew up with a Doré bible in the house. Scary. but Fascinating.

I agree, the depiction's of death and destruction are fabulously gory. The Judgement Day with angels bearing trumpets and swords, swooping down and slaying the unbelievers is particularly dark. Talk about 'striking the fear of God' into impressionable young minds.
