Weighing of Souls

This episode from the Last Judgement sometimes appears as a separate subject. Miniatures of the Weighing of souls, or psychostasis, show an angel, typically Michael, holding a scale with the souls of the dead. The scene sometimes also draws from the Taʾammǝra Māryām Miracles of Mary and features Mary interceding for the soul of a deceased.
