Revelation Takes Musical Form
Sunday May 19 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In the two lectures, we have seen the book of Revelation play a turbulent role in the late-medieval power struggles among popes, emperors, and church reformers. The polemical use of Revelation
continued to be all too common in the years that followed the Protestant Reformation. In this lecture, however, we will consider Revelation from a completely different perspective, a musical one. As we will see, Revelation is one of the most musical books in the Bible; it incorporates many songs and has inspired countless more. The polemics fade when we look at Revelation musically, and what remains is a vivid sense of joy, hope, and fellowship.
