Abstract

J.Y. Jindo proposes that "history is what characterizes prophetic eschatology and myth is what typifies apocalyptic eschatology." The evidence indicates, however, that a concern for history sits at the heart of apocalyptic literature, or at least the historical apocalyptica. Moreover, the nature and presentation of the history in this literature indicates a pervasive and comprehensive apocalyptic historiography. Since apocalyptic literature played a substantial role in ancient and mediaeval Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—and continues to play some role today—the scope and influences of this historiography might be greater than hitherto envisioned.
