Mathews, The OT in Revelation

Mathews, Susan Fournier. A Critical Evaluation of the Allusions to the Old Testament in Apocalypse 1:1-8:5. D.Phil.-dissertation, the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., 1987.

Although Dr. Mathews treats the question of methodology, Paulien should be the first choice with regard to methodology. Dr. Mathews compiles the alleged allusions from a number of critical editions of the NT, commentaries and other scholarly discussions.

As I have had access to only the first 16 pages and the conclusion and bibliography is a rather ineligible copy, I cannot really state whether or not her treatment is valuable.

Nevertheless, to her and my knowledge, this is the only treatment of Rev 1:1-8:5.
