Great News! All 28 Episodes in the Revised Version are now available.
All but Episode 28 in the 2021 A.D. Edition of this series are now available! Episodes 28 will be available before the end of the week of 11/28.
We think you will enjoy the changes we’ve made to made the video more consistent in style with our other video series and also the increased number of illustrations from multiple versions of Revelation, plus the complete cross-references to Other AIC Resource (Books, Videos, Podcast) on topics mentioned in each episode. With these changes the Video series will have a separate personality from the companion book, Revelation: an Idealist Interpretation, which is focused on the spectacular illuminations in the Bamberg Apocalpse manuscript. In addition to material from the Bamberg manuscript viewers will find illuminations from the Apocalypse of Liebana, the Saint-Sever Beatus, the Huth Apocalypse, the Queen Mary Apocalypse, the Abingdon Apocalypse and a frontipiece to Revelation from the Bible of San Paulo fuori le mura (a part of which is visible in the masthead), as well as many other illustrations of people and places named in Revelation.
