Remarks on persecutions and the imperial cult

This topic deals with works who treat the themes of persecutions and the imperial cult with or without reference to Revelation.

Although some scholars have uttered their disagreement, until recently few Revelation scholars have doubted that there were imperially initiated severe persecutions in Asia which was the primary reason for Revelation.

Now, however, several scholars have rejected or modified this traditional view, but no consensus has been reached, and the debate is likely to continue untill more research and synthetic interpretation has been carried out.
