Title: Apocalypsis Joannis tot habet sacramenta quot verba [Studies on Language, Tradition and Reception of High-German Translations of the Apocalypse of the Late Middle Ages]
Subtitle: Studien zu Sprache, Überlieferung und Rezeption hochdeutscher Apokalypseübersetzungen des späten Mittelalters
Written By: Carola Redzich
Series Title: Münchener Texte und Untersuchungen zur deutschen Literatur des Mittelalters 137

This book provides a complete overview of the tradition of High German
translations of the apocalypse in the 14th and 15th century. The methods
and requirements of translation are investigated in the context of traditional
Bible interpretation. The translation profiles are primarily influenced by the
orthodox interpretation of the apocalypse and its transmission in sermons
and by the author profile of John the Evangelist. The texts thus do not
offer 'apocalyptic' reading but instead emphasize the hopeful character of the
book and its didactic potential.
