Overview

This is arguably one of the most influential and thorough works on the book of Revelation. First published in 1844, it took Elliott seven years to complete the first edition. Considered an immediate scholarly standard, Horæ Apocalypticæ: A Commentary on the Apocalypse, Critical and Historical, vol. 1 focuses on critical historical context of both the time and the writing itself, as well as the supernatural inspiration of the text. Defending Revelation from a purely rationalist view common at the time, Elliott believed that a combination of historical context and spiritual considerations were essential to reading not just Revelation, but all of Scripture. Boasting over 2,500 pages for all four volumes, Elliott provides a systematic view of the Apocalypse. This first volume includes an introduction to Elliott’s line of thinking, St. John in exile, general views of the Seven Seals, and explanation and application of certain symbols.

Horæ Apocalypticæ: A Commentary on the Apocalypse, Critical and Historical, vol. 1 is perfect for students, professors, historians, and anyone wanting a greater grasp on this divisive book of the Bible. With the Logos edition, all Scriptures are linked to the Bibles in your library, making study fast and easy.
