Elijah in Upper Egypt The Apocalypse of Elijah and Early Egyptian Christianity (Studies in Antiquity & Christianity)
This significant contribution to our knowledge of Egyptian Christianity in the late third century includes discussion of the Apocalypse of Elijah as religious literature; the Egyptian provenance of the document; its social and historical context; a complete translation. Frankfurter s analysis of The Apocalypse of Elijah is a detailed and creative piece of work. His mastery of literary theory and the social-scientific method is evident throughout, and the union of the two methods in this work is impressive. James E. Goehring, Mary Washington College This book is a remarkable piece of work. Frankfurter makes a convincing case for the use of native Egyptian prophetic traditions in the Apocalypse of Elijah.
