dc.description.abstractThe book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse of John, the last book of the New Testament, has intrigued interpreters for the last two thousand years due to its cornucopia of images. Should it be read as a book that describes the historical persecution of the early Christians, or should it be read as a book predicting the future? This paper focuses on the futurist commentary of Alphonsus Frey of 1762, which predicts the end of the world for 2014. His approach will be compared to the post-Tridentine approaches to Revelation, in order to show the wider developments in Catholic exegesis that lead in the eighteenth century to an abandonment of futurism.en_GB
