The book of Revelation is one of the most eagerly sought after areas of study among laypeople and study groups today. But how did the church's earliest writers interpret John's Apocalypse? In this volume of the Ancient Christian Texts Series, William Weinrich translates two texts from the Christian East deriving from the early sixth century. Oecumenius of Isauria's commentary on the book comes from the Greek tradition is one of the earliest known treatments of John's vision from Patmos. Weinrich then contrasts Oecumenius' text with a second commentary written by Andrew of Caesarea, where Andrew summarizes portions of Oecumenius before offering his own contrary opinion with respect to interpretation. Together, these two ancient texts introduce readers to a little-known early dialogue on the meaning and overall significance of the book of Revelation. A noteworthy alternative to the sensationalist end-times dialogue of today.
