By Amy-Jill Levine,Maria Mayo Robbins

The 13th quantity during this landmark sequence examines the Revelation of John in the course of the different types of post-colonial suggestion, deconstruction, ethics, Roman social discourse, masculinization, virginity, and violence. The succeed in of this quantity hence is going past that of so much feminist experiences of Revelation, which regularly specialize in the feminine imagery: the Thyatiran prophet known as 'Jezebel', the 'Woman Clothed with the Sun', the 'Whore of Babylon', and the 'Bride'/the 'Heavenly Jerusalem'. The symbols of Revelation stay open and interpetations proceed. a few readers will refuse to celebrate on the dismemberment of the Woman-who-is-Babylon; they're going to withstand the (masochistic? infantile?) self-abasement ahead of this imperial Deity who principles through patriarchal domination. Others will finish that those descriptions are 'only' metaphors, separate shape from substance, and worship the transcendent to which the metaphors imperfectly aspect. a few readers will comprehend, if no longer absolutely condone, John's rhetoric through looking his political and social place; others will condone, if now not totally comprehend, how the Apocalypse promises convenience to these present process persecution or deprivation.

Some readers might reject the coercive features of a call among spending eternity in compliment of the divine or being 'tortured' with fireplace and sulfer; others may possibly celebrate of their personal salvation whereas believing that these being tortured deserve each ache causing upon them; nonetheless others may possibly use mimicry or parody or anachronistic analogy to problem, defang, or change John's message. What we discover at the back of the veil will be appealing, or terrifying, or either, yet we won't dodge our eyes: John's imaginative and prescient is just too influential this day, in our personal political weather, to not search for ourselves.

The Feminist better half to the Apocalypse of John contains contributions through David L. Barr, Mary Ann Beavis, Greg Carey, Adela Yarbro Collins, Lynn R. Huber, Catherine Keller, John Marshall, Stephen Moore, Jorunn Økland, Hanna Stenström, Pamela Thimmes, and Carolyn Vander Stichele. there's an creation through Amy-Jill Levine and a accomplished bibliography.
