Type of biblical and other literature in which a revelation is given through highly symbolic visions The premier biblical examples are found in the books of Revelation and Daniel From the Greek meaning "uncovering" or "revelation "
Greek for "revelation," a genre of literature common in social crises or circumstances of persecution, characterized by: 1) a method whereby a prophecy or event from the past associated with a wise figure or religious intermediary (story) is applied to the present day (discourse) to render the meaning of the present chaos clear; 2) mythic features such as a view of God as lord of history, a view of time divided into two ages (the present evil age and the future age of God's reign, a view of ethics that is sharply dualistic, a view of the cosmos which is also binary, envisioning a heavenly plane and an earthly plane with parallel histories, and an esoteric language of visions and symbols that communicate meaning; and 3) and a sense of urgency about time that senses an imminent end of time Biblical apocalyptic flourished from 200 BCE to 200 CE
Referring to the belief that the end of the world as we know it is approaching, usually through a sudden, catataclysmic transformation Comes from the Greek word apokalypsis meaning "the lifting of a veil," or a revelation Also the name given to a specific genre of prophetic literature, of which the book of Revelation is best known Western apocalyptic traditions tend to be dualistic, in that they view this end as the final outcome of an ongoing battle between good and evil forces, usually represented by God and Satan
A type of writing or religious outlook in general which focusses on the last things and the end of the world, often taking the form of visions with complex symbolism The book of Daniel (Old Testament) and Revelation (New Testament) are examples of this type of writing
