Book Review: The Apocalypse. By Eugenio Corsini, Dublin: Veritas Publications, 1983. IR£7.75

Book ReviewThe Apocalypse. By Eugenio Corsini, Dublin: Veritas Publications, 1983. IR£7.75 SAGE Publications, Inc.1985DOI: 10.1177/002114008505100406 Kealy C.S.Sp. No book, from ancient to modern times, which has engaged so many brilliant scholars from Augustine to Isaac Newton, has produced such a wide array of disagreement on its interpretation as The Apocalypse. Eugenio Corsini, Professor of Ancient Christian Literature at the University of Turin, has produced, what his English translator and editor, Australian Scripture scholar, Francis J. Moloney, calls, a startling, unique approach. According to Moloney we dedicate insuflicient attention to Italian and Spanish scholarship, because we are so fascinated by the Germans and to a lesser extent the French. 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 http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Irish Theological Quarterly SAGE
