The Beatus codex Berlin represents a rarity in series Beatus codices. Dating from the early twelfth century and probably made in Italy, it is one of the lesser known testimonies of this kind. The manuscript that once belonged to the collection of Carlo Morbio Milan, has 98 pages and includes 55 line drawings, enriched with pigments of red, ocher and yellow.
The illustrative apparatus is one of the main attractions of this work, as it includes a different version of archaic iconography found mostly in other testimonies of the series, which makes it a rare and precious thing for bibliophiles and collectors of Blessed.
