‘This is a most welcome and timely intervention in the field of late medieval visionary literature. With its careful analysis of the Apocalypse’s influence upon William Langland and Julian of Norwich, Byron-Davies makes a strong case for far more widespread apocalyptic concerns imbricating late medieval socio-religious texts and their epistemologies than have hitherto been considered. Linking exegetical tradition with more immediate socio-religious apocalyptic hermeneutics, this book skilfully unpicks the complex entanglement of theology, eschatology, soteriology, textual poetics and gender construction articulated in both subtle and complex ways in the writings under scrutiny.’
-Professor Liz Herbert McAvoy, Swansea University

'Revelation and the Apocalypse offers a substantial contribution to the current understandings of Langland’s temporal world, both soteriological and historical, and also elucidates Julian of Norwich’s theological influences beyond what has been discovered previously. The author offers an original and illuminating mode of reading these texts that will intrigue readers both familiar and unacquainted with Julian and Langland.'
