Project description

The Apocalyptic-eschatological views were subjects to change soon after the writing of the Apocalys. Alternative interprestations cna be discerned at certain points in time, especially in the Western European Middle Ages. The evolution of the Apocalyptic-eschatological ideas in the work of the 14th-century Middle Dutch authors Velthem, Boendale en Van Leeuwen will be the focus of the research project.
