Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Fate of the Dead Studies on the Jewish and Christian Apocalypses contains the table of contents, details of previous publications of chapters, preface, abbreviations, and texts and translations. The book discusses the study of particular apocalypses whose main subject-matter is the fate of the dead and which have been largely neglected, such as the Apocalypse of Peter, the Apocalypse of the Seven Heavens, and the Apocalypses of the Virgin, works which date from the early centuries C.E. The chapter also focuses on themes that recur throughout the corpus of apocalypses, both those which set the fate of the dead within a range of wider cosmic or eschatological interests and those which focus largely or solely on the fate of the dead.

Keywords: Christian Apocalypses; Jewish Apocalypses
