Item Description...
Overview
From early on the book of Revelation was more widely accepted in the West than in the East. Indeed the earliest extant commentaries on Revelation in Greek date from Oecumenius's commentary in the sixth century, which was soon accompanied by that of Andrew of Caesarea. Earlier Eastern fathers did, however, make reference to Revelation in noncommentary works. This ACCS volume edited by William C. Weinrich draws heavily on the two Greek commentaries from Oecumenius and Andrew of Caesarea to represent Eastern interpretation, while focusing on six other commentaries as primary witnesses to Western interpretation--those of Victorinus of Petovium, Tyconius, Primasius, Caesarius of Arles, Apringius of Beja and Bede the Venerable. Every effort has been made to give adequate context so that the creative use of Scripture, the theological interest and the pastoral intent can be discerned by readers today.

Publishers Description
The Revelation to John--with its vivid images and portraits of conflict leading up to the marriage supper of the Lamb, the cosmic destruction of evil, and the formation of a new heaven and a new earth--was widely read, even as it was variously interpreted in the early church. Approaches to its interpretation ranged from the millenarian approach of Victorinus of Petovium to the more symbolic interpretation of Tyconius, who read Revelation in the sense of the universal and unitary time of the church. Tyconius's Book of Rules, deeply admired by Augustine with its seven principles of interpretation, strongly influenced not only ongoing interpretation of the Revelation but the whole of medieval exegesis.

ACCS on Revelation  Feb 25, 2006
This is one of the recently published books of the Bible in this well-known series. I have about fifteen of the series, all from this site.com. They are mostly commentaries on NT books. ACCS culls comments from Early Christian writers of the 2nd-8th centuries C.E. The writers and their short biographies are given in the back of each book. The comments of many well-known writers are used over and over again: Augustine, John Chrysostom, and the Venerable Bede are favorites. But also (as in the Revelation commentary-2005) about 150 others have their say. This series is a real aid in preparing articles on biblical topics. For those who want a more contextual or narrative format, which contains comments from these prolific Christians, I might suggest "The Church's Bible," Robert Louis Wilken, general editor (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2005). Only a couple of that series have been published so far. I have "1 Corinthians, Interpreted by Early Chrisian Commentators."
