While associated primarily with vision poetry, the motif also served wider theological and philosophical purposes in the late Roman Republic and early Imperial periods and had spread beyond purely literary confines. The genre also engaged with philosophical, theological and eschatological themes. Thus engaging with Revelation 21 as a locus amoenus, as a contextually appropriate form, may have served as a jumping-off point into the less familiar realms of Judaic eschatological symbolism. Lastly, it is suggested that the appearance of the motif within what would become the Scriptures of emerging Christianity may provide a reason for the later more explicit developments of the genre in patristic writing.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 13:02:34 AEST ]]> Rhubarb, rhubarb, alleluia, amen: xenolalia, glossolalia, and neurophysiology /manager/Repository/uon:48560 Tue 21 Mar 2023 15:44:55 AEDT ]]> Betrayal or Blasphemy?
