International Conference: Apocalyptic Otherness
14. February 2018 - 16. February 2018
Apocalyptic Otherness: ‘They are Gog and Magog, gathered together for Battle’. Scyths, Arabs, or the US Army?
Outstanding scholars will treat the biblical origins of the Gog-and-Magog motif, its reception in early Christian literature and in the medieval exegesis as well as its further literary development in Europe.
This history of reception will be compared with the development of this apocalyptic motif in oriental and Islamic traditions. Organization: Georges Tamer (FAU), Julia Eva Wannenmacher (Bern), Christiane Witthöft (FAU).
