Revelation and Apocalyptic Literature

  Sponsors: Garrett Best ([email protected])

The new Research Group Revelation and Apocalyptic Literature will begin at the annual meeting in 2024. The last decade has seen many exciting developments in the area of Revelation and apocalyptic literature. This group invites papers that delve into various aspects of interpretation of Revelation and related literature. We welcome papers that explore innovative and traditional methods of interpreting apocalyptic literature or explore the historical and cultural context in which various literatures were produced. Submissions may analyze the socio-political, religious, and literary milieu that influenced the development of apocalyptic thought. We also welcome submissions that explore how apocalyptic texts shape religious thought, eschatological expectation, and theological doctrines. Proposals should be sent to Garrett Best ([email protected]). Submission deadline: February 29, 2024.
