Chapter Summary

The Daniel-diegesis is a very particular apocalypse.1. This diegesis is transmitted in three manuscripts: two complete texts inM and in B and a kind of abstract V. The historical part of the Apocalypse of Pseudo-Methodius is clearly inspired by the prediction of Daniel, based on the succession of the four world empires (Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome), with the argument that the apparently successful development of the Arabic empire can only be temporary. In chapter 6 of the Daniel-diegesis the final defeat and the massacre of the Arabs is told, followed by a description of the reign of the ideal emperor and the realized utopian period. The author ends the chapter a single remark about the term Agarenes. This term is already used for indicating the Arabs in the Septuaginta, 1 Chr 5:19, where the sons of Reuben and Gad wage war against the Arabs.

Keywords:Byzantine writings; Daniel-diegesis; Hagar
