The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up- Revelation 8:7
The events pictured here occurred under Alaric the Goth in the years 395-399 A.D. The symbol of hail is employed to denote the frozen northern origins of the barbarian invaders. The fire and the blood represents the burning and slaughter which followed them. They devastated the western part of the Roman empire.
