1. The Vision of the End

The voyage of discovery about the Christian version of the Apocalypse continues the prophetical tradition of Judaism. As Rabbi Elio Toaff says, "...in the Jewish tradition, the advent of the Messiah has to be preceded by huge disruption. In the Talmud this is called, 'hable mashiah.'" All the more or less obscure prophecies of the West originate from the Apocalypse, or Revelation, of John the Apostle, who saw mysterious visions that he transcribed into the book of Revelation while exiled in Greece on the island of Patmos and Mount Athos. Mount Athos, or Holy Mountain, is a monastic republic, the last theocratic state in our time, where no woman is admitted, and where monks live among twenty monasteries with no signs of the modern age. Here we find the great monastery, whose library holds thousands of manuscripts, including those of Plato, Aristotle and Homer; also in other monasteries we view enigmatic frescoes of the Apocalypse that date back to the 16th century. 07/10DE SCA 60 min.
