Published in 1950, The Apocalypse. Meditations on the Secret Revelation contains Adrienne von Speyr’s verse-by-verse commentary on what is perhaps the most difficult book of Scripture: the Revelation of Saint John. As always, Adrienne’s approach is not that of an academic exegete, but of a lay woman with an uncommon gift for unlocking the theological depths of the text through objective, attentive reading. In particular, she is concerned with three sets of themes: the subjective conditions in the Apostle for receiving the visions, the forms of truth proper to the visions, and, finally, the content of the visions themselves. For Adrienne, the Book of Revelation turns out to be a re-reading of the Gospel events from the point of view of heaven.
