55th International Congress on Medieval Studies
May 7 - May 10
Byzantine apocalyptic literature greatly shaped the apocalyptic imagination of the Middle Ages. Various narrative sequences and even whole texts that originated in Byzantium came to fundamentally condition the medieval outlook of the eschatological future. This session is dedicated to an interdisciplinary discussion of medieval Greek apocalyptic traditions, with an emphasis on historiography, hermeneutical approaches, and textual analysis.
