The Explanation of the Apocalypse by The Venerable Bede (673 - 735). Translated by Edward Marshall (1815 - 1899)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-explanation-of-the-apocalypse-by-the-venerable-bede/
The Explanation of the Apocalypse by Ven. Beda is the earliest of the many works of our own writers on that Book, and, as such, may well deserve to appear in a form accessible to English readers.

The chief characteristics of Beda's method of exposition may be thus stated. The several visions are considered not to be successive, but contemporaneous, with occasional recapitulations and to represent the condition of the Church in all ages, under different aspects. The thousand years, in the twentieth chapter, are interpreted of the present period of the Church's existence, in accordance with the opinion of St Augustine, in the second part of his De Civitate Dei. The 'attention is closely directed to the text, and to corresponding passages of Holy Scripture, that the meaning of the symbolic language may be elicited. The previous exposition of Tichonius is mainly, but not exclusively followed. Beda appears, for example, to have adopted several opinions from St. Gregory the Great, and Frimasius, as well as St. Augustine.

The date of the "Explanation" is circa. A.D. 710 — 716. It is described by Beda as an "Exposition" but it is called an "Explanation" in the printed editions of his works. (Preface)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/explanationapoc00bedegoog/page/n12/mode/2up
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

With the truncation of the works of Tertullian and having recorded (though not yet edited) my final section for it, I thought it is time to launch a project which would get some pre-recorded files off my drive.

The dates for the translator comes from here: https://archives.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/repositories/2/resources/1184

Why would you want to DPL this?
  • It's early British writing.
  • It's a commentary on Revelation.
  • He's brief and insightful.

Thanks MaryAnn.

Almost all uploaded.

He's sometimes insightful but tends to be piecemeal rather than thinking about the larger plot of Revelation and he's inherited this bad habit from Augustine of making every symbol which he doesn't know what to do with stand for the church...

All done.

Bede himself apologises for his speculative comments in chapter 21 about the stones.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll be working on them this week, and maybe into next week. We'll have company starting tomorrow afternoon, so not sure how much listening time I'll have for the rest of this week ...

Many thanks! No rush at all (unless you still think you're in the running for the total number of projects this year and need to get the numbers up!)

Would you please check 21 at about 28.17? It's the list of stones, and I think you said one of them twice, with different pronunciations.
Thanks.
