The 13th quantity during this landmark sequence examines the Revelation of John throughout the different types of post-colonial notion, deconstruction, ethics, Roman social discourse, masculinization, virginity, and violence. The achieve of this quantity hence is going past that of such a lot feminist stories of Revelation, which regularly concentrate on the feminine imagery: the Thyatiran prophet referred to as 'Jezebel', the 'Woman Clothed with the Sun', the 'Whore of Babylon', and the 'Bride'/the 'Heavenly Jerusalem'. The symbols of Revelation stay open and interpetations proceed. a few readers will refuse to have a good time on the dismemberment of the Woman-who-is-Babylon; they're going to face up to the (masochistic? infantile?) self-abasement sooner than this imperial Deity who ideas via patriarchal domination. Others will finish that those descriptions are 'only' metaphors, separate shape from substance, and worship the transcendent to which the metaphors imperfectly aspect. a few readers will comprehend, if no longer absolutely condone, John's rhetoric by way of looking his political and social situation; others will condone, if now not totally comprehend, how the Apocalypse supplies convenience to these present process persecution or deprivation.

Some readers may well reject the coercive features of a decision among spending eternity in compliment of the divine or being 'tortured' with hearth and sulfer; others could have fun of their personal salvation whereas believing that these being tortured deserve each ache causing upon them; nonetheless others may perhaps use mimicry or parody or anachronistic analogy to problem, defang, or exchange John's message. What we discover in the back of the veil can be attractive, or terrifying, or either, yet we won't avoid our eyes: John's imaginative and prescient is simply too influential at the present time, in our personal political weather, to not search for ourselves.
