Abstract

Book ReviewThe Apocalypse. By Eugenio Corsini, Dublin: Veritas Publications, 1983. IR£7.75 SAGE Publications, Inc.1985DOI: 10.1177/002114008505100406 Kealy C.S.Sp.

Moloney, calls, a startling, unique approach.

He claims that Corsini, who was led to his approach by a study of the earliest Fathers and the acts of the Martyrs, has explained a large number of internal difficulties of structure, unity, coherent argument, use of the Old Testament, symbols and symbolic language and even some difficult textual problems (Apoc 5:7; 13:8; 20:I0). Corsini's approach is to detach the Apocalypse from the common eschatological interpretation and interpret it and all its difficulties around a single argument, which provides the sub-title for his book: the perennial revelation of Jesus
