Commentary on the Apocalypse, Part 1: From Christ with Love, by St. Beatus of Liebana. Translated by M. S. O’Brien.
The first ever English translation of Beatus’ great book of commentary on the Book of Revelation! Wise words from early Christianity blend with timeless advice on how to live in a world where not every Christian is holy.
Part I focuses on the seven letters Christ sends with love to the seven churches in Chapters 1-3 of Revelation, while also including broad overviews of how to interpret the whole book. (This includes Beatus’ prologues, the Summa Dicendorum, and Books 1 and 2 of his Commentary. Plus tons of footnotes.) About 250 pp, if you don’t count all the extra indexes and so forth.
