The People of God in the Apocalypse: Discourse, Structure and Exegesis
Publisher: Cambridge Univ Pr | 2004 | ISBN: 0521836980 | English | True PDF | 272 pages | 2.45 Mb

This book examines how the original audience of the Apocalypse would have heard themselves portrayed in the visions of Revelation 4-22, and in what directions it would have motivated them. The challenge is following Christ's example of faithful witness, even to the point of death, and resisting rival claimants to the allegiance of the faithful. Stephen Pattemore uses Relevance Theory, a development in the linguistic field of pragmatics, to help understand Revelation against the background of allusion to other, biblical and non-biblical texts.

Living with the Dead: Ancestor Worship and Mortuary Ritual in Ancient Egypt by Nicola Harrington
English | 2012 | ISBN: 1842174932 | ISBN-13: 9781842174937 | 208 pages | PDF | 38,6 MB

Living with the Dead presents a detailed analysis of ancestor worship in Egypt, using a diverse range of material, both archaeological and anthropological, to examine the relationship between the living and the dead. Iconography and terminology associated with the deceased reveal indistinct differences between the blessedness and malevolence and that the potent spirit of the dead required constant propitiation in the form of worship and offerings.
