9780199689019: Picturing the Apocalypse: The Book of Revelation in the Arts over Two Millennia
Críticas:

The Apocalypse is the glorious conclusion to the story of our redemption, or the moment when the Bible soars off into sci-fi: take your pick. The O'Hears, father and daughter, trace the extraordinary imaginative impact of the last book of the Bible on the visual artists. While exploring the dynamic power of this final book of Scripture, they take us on an exciting journey, from Durer to D.H. Lawrence, from Memling to Ingmar Bergman. Apocalypse is a text which yields so many interpreters that it is bound to be puzzling, but this gentle, artistic book is a tribute to the visionary of Patmoss abiding power to inspire. ( A.N. Wilson)

Revelation, the Bible's one visionary book, is often dismissed either as a fantasy for fundamentalists or as a literary and theological aberration. In this erudite and endlessly fascinating book, Anthony and Natasha O'Hear show, that it is, in fact, one of the great books of the world, a rich source of imagery, metaphor and moral insight that has inspired artists and thinkers of every age and should inspire everybody with its message of gentle resistance to malign power. ( Bryan Appleyard)

Natasha and Anthony O'Hear are to be congratulated for their book on Revelation, which takes as its starting point its central theme - its visionary claim. It offers a very necessary reminder that the visual character of this remarkable text can often be best communicated through art, music and poetry, which they illustrate so well. Not only does it introduce us to the ways in which this apocalyptic text has down the centuries inspired some of the most dramatic and inspired paintings, but it also helps us get some sense of why this book has grasped the imagination of readers past and present. It is based on the best modern scholarship and presents Revelation to the general reader, primarily through the riches of the art it has inspired. Readers will find much here to treasure which will stimulate further reflection. ( Prof. Christopher Rowland, Dean Ireland's Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture, 1991-2014)

Reseña del editor:

The book of Revelation has been a source of continual fascination for nearly two thousand years. Concepts such as the Lamb of God, the Four Horsemen, the Seventh Seal, the Beasts and Antichrist, the Whore of Babylon, Armageddon, the Millennium, the Last Judgement, the New Jerusalem, and the ubiquitous angels of the Apocalypse have captured the popular imagination. One can hardly open a newspaper or click on a news site without reading about impending financial or climate-change Armageddon, while the concept of the Four Horsemen pervades popular music, gaming, and satire. Yet few people know much about either the basic meaning or original context of these concepts or the multiplicity of different ways in which they have been interpreted by visual artists in particular. The visual history of this most widely illustrated of all the biblical books deserves greater attention.

This book fills these gaps in a striking and original way by means of ten concise thematic chapters which explain the origins of these concepts from the book of Revelation in an accessible way. These explanations are augmented and developed via a carefully selected sample of the ways in which the concepts have been treated by artists through the centuries. The 120 visual examples are drawn from a wide range of time periods and media including the ninth-century Trier Apocalypse, thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman Apocalypse Manuscripts such as the Lambeth and Trinity Apocalypses, the fourteenth-century Angers Apocalypse Tapestry, fifteenth-century Apocalypse altarpieces by Van Eyck and Memling, Dürer and Cranach's sixteenth-century Apocalypse woodcuts, and more recently a range of works by William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, Max Beckmann, as well as film posters and film stills, cartoons, and children's book illustrations. The final chapter demonstrates the continuing resonance of all the themes in contemporary religious, political, and popular thinking, while throughout the book a contrast will be drawn between those readers of Revelation who have seen it in terms of earthly revolutions in the here and now, and those who have adopted a more spiritual, other-worldly approach.
