Patmos in the Reception History of the Apocalypse

Patmos in the Reception History of the Apocalypse

Ian Boxall

This monograph explores the significance accorded to John's island of Patmos (Rev. 1:9) within the wider reception history of the Apocalypse. It brings together for the first time in a coherent narrative a wide range of interpretations of Patmos (in sermons, liturgy and visual art as well as biblical commentaries), reflecting different chronological periods, cultural contexts, and Christian traditions.
