Giovanni Battista Bazzana
The main focus of this course will be on the apocalyptic literature of the Second Temple and early Christian periods through the close reading in translation of four representative texts (1 Enoch, Daniel, the Apocalypse of John, and 4 Ezra). The course will not be limited to the reading of apocalyptic texts, but it intends to address the main themes that characterize historical research on and the exegesis of this subject, as the definition of the apocalyptic genre, the counter-hegemonic elements in the texts, or the role of violence, which often informs apocalyptic imagery. Note: Course has additional section hour to be arranged.
