The ‘Coventry Doom’ Spent Centuries Hiding in Plain Sight

The Holy Trinity Church in the center of Coventry, England dates back to at least the 13th century. It has great architectural merit in its own right, but the real star of the show is the “Coventry Doom.”

Doom paintings were common features in English medieval churches, but few have survived to this day. This intriguing artwork stretches across an arch underneath the tower. Built in the early 15th century, the painting pre-dates other masterpieces, like Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, by several years.
