Alpha and Omega: Visions of the Millennium

Alpha and Omega: Visions of the Millennium Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most definitive visions of a new age is described in the Revelation of St. John the Divine, from which the title of this beautiful volume is taken: "I was in the Spirit of the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last."

For many people, the year 2000 has profound significance. Over the centuries humanity has dreamed of a better world and many predictions of an apocalypse preceding a golden age have been timed to coincide with the millennium. Alpha and Omega contains extracts from the Revelation of St. John the Divine and magnificent apocalyptic images. From works by artists ranging from Hieronymus Bosch to Michelangelo to William Blake, as well as miniatures from manuscripts in the Getty Museum, the visionary power of the images in this book combined with its resounding prosecreate a timely anthology befitting this extraordinary year.

Synopsis:

From works by artists ranging from Hieronymus Bosch to Michelangelo to William Blake, as well as miniatures from manuscripts in the Getty Museum, the visionary power of the images in this book, combined with its resounding prose, creates a timely anthology befitting the year 2000. 50 color illustrations.
