Christian Revelations & Apocalypses

Note that the terms "apocalypse" and "revelation" are both translations of the same Greek term. Technically, "revelation" is a translation and "apocalypse" is a transliteration. The upshot is that the same works are often referred to by different modern writers as the "Apocalypse of X" or the "Revelation of X", creating no shortage of confusion. I would have preferred to standardize on "revelation," at least partly because "apocalypse" in modern usage carries with it the connotation of eschatological vision. While this is certainly a feature of some of the works which go by the name, it is not so of all. Never-the-less, in scholarly circles, 'apocalypse' is the standard label for some of these works, 'revelation' for others.
