This volume of essays by Christopher Rowland concerns the nature of apocalypticism and its reception history. While the eschatological character predominates in modern biblical scholarship, the author argues for a focus rather on the revelatory form of apocalyptic texts. A consistent thread throughout the volume is the pervasiveness of apocalyptic and mystical elements in the New Testament and the reception of these ideas, culminating in the apocalyptic texts and images of William Blake.
