      The Aeneid and NT eschatology Dear Rev-listers

      Can anyone provide me with references useful for examining the Aeneid in relation to New Testament eschatology? Of course, I'm particularly interested in parallels with Revelation.

      I have had Putnam, M.C.J. Vergil's Aeneid: Interpretation and Influence recommended, but not having seen it I don't know what it covers.

      Many thanks

      Greg Clarke

        Hi Greg,

        I know J.J. Collins refers to the Aeneid when he classifies the genre of
        apocalyptic literature. I've only looked at his book briefly so far, so
        I don't know whether he elaborates on parallels between Rev and Vergil
        further into his book...

        J.J. Collins, "Apocalypse: The Morphology of a Genre" Semeia 14
        (Missoula, 1979).

        hope this helps a bit!
