Summary/Abstract: This paper looks into the relationship between the visual embedded in a narrative technique (text) and the textual embedded in a visual technique. In doing so, I am illustrating the inter-play between text and imagery integrated not only within the same artwork, but also within the context of a spatial – service unity, thereby suggesting a conscious relation between an artist and a priest-preacher in a church or a monastery. My thesis is that complementarity and interdependency between text and image can exist even beyond the boundaries of a sin-gle artwork. As an entry point to this discussion, and building up on previous work1, I am using the Tenth Homily “On Future Judgement” and other homilies by Nektarios Terpos2 to-gether with scenes of the Last Judgement from Myzeqe region, central Albania, where Nektarios Terpos engaged in his homiletic activity and where copies of his book circulated.
