Summary

The Book of Revelation, the last of the books of the New Testament, is a work without compare: visionary and spiritual, powerful and terrifying. This book brings together the text with many of the artworks it has inspired; from exquisite medieval illuminated manuscripts and the graphic woodcuts of Albrecht Durer, to paintings by Turner and William Blake. The combination of text and image in this stunning edition will enthral general readers and students alike. This powerful text has fascinated people for centuries and continues to do so into the 21st century. A detailed introduction for the general reader helps to explain the symbolism and structure of Apocalypse. The text takes the form of an address to the seven churches of Asia, and a warning to them to stay faithful. This is followed by an extended prophecy which relates a time of war and disaster, a final judgement of the wicked, and the dawn of a new heaven and earth. The conflict between good and evil and the notion of ultimate judgement that lie at the heart of the book have a profound resonance for believers and non-believers alike.
