Revelation and the Apocalyptic Tradition
Sunday December 2 2018 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
The book of Revelation is one of the most intriguing and most discussed books of all time. Its pages contain a remarkable cast of characters, from a monstrous red dragon and a seven-headed beast to countless hosts of angels. It offers us terrifying scenes of cosmic conflict and glimpses of heavenly splendour. In this series of lectures, we’ll investigate the background of Revelation, the text itself, and the impact it has had on Western culture. Along the way, we’ll ask: What draws people to the Apocalypse? How was the book read in its own time? And what does it have to say about spiritual life in the present?
