Chapter Summary

This chapter integrates traits with reflections on alterity conveyed by the imagistic. It draws together the traits that lead to the decision for the cognitive approach of this study and for proposing the term 'apocalypticality' as framing apocalyptic comprehension. The chapter focuses on the encounter with the 'other' as an ordering space of the world in the apocalypse. It also shows how the traditional exegetical discipline is not particularly interested in the various ways in which the imagistic of the Apocalypse and its readers interrelate, to build, in the realm of cognition and emotion, a consciousness of the 'other. An intriguing quality of the apocalypse is its ability to evoke in the reader possibilities of a variety of reflections. In the Apocalypse, liturgical themes rise to prominence in the course of repeated use of ceremonial descriptions and this has led to the appropriation of the apocalypse in christian worship.

Keywords: apocalypticality; christian worship; cognitive approach
