Description: This page refers to various studies which, while analysing various aspects of Revelation, employ ancient or modern rhetorical theory. (July 29th, 2000)
Employing not only the rhetorical notion of authorial ethos, but postcolonial and resistance criticism, this book, a (probably revised) edition of Carey's 1996 Ph.D.-thesis, deals with how Revelation constructs authority and concludes that John's authorial ethos is unstable, and that the same modern unstability only can be escaped by finding a way to submit our visions to public dialogue. (A more detailed evaluation of this book will be added later). (July 29th, 2000)
