A large triptych by Lucas van Leyden. He made it for the Pieterskerk in his native city Leiden. It is one of few altarpieces that survived the 1566 iconoclast.

To the left is heaven, to the right hell. In the centre panel Jesus sits on his throne, accompanied by the apostles. Below them the Day of Judgment is happening.

On the back of the panels are depictions of Saints Peter and Paul, the patrons of the Pieterskerk.
