BUY MY BOOK!

Did you wonder what happened to previous posts on this blog after I corrected them and smoothed them out? Wonder no more!

I am publishing the world’s first English translation of St. Beatus of Liebana’s Commentary on the Apocalypse, extensively footnoted, with many features left out of all three critical editions of the Latin original! Volume I is available now!

<a href="Cover of first Beatus book, with angel and letter

Commentary on the Apocalypse, Part 1: From Christ with Love, by St. Beatus of Liebana. Translated by M. S. O’Brien.

The first ever English translation of Beatus’ great book of commentary on the Book of Revelation! Wise words from early Christianity blend with timeless advice on how to live in a world where not every Christian is holy.

Part I focuses on the seven letters Christ sends with love to the seven churches in Chapters 1-3 of Revelation, while also including broad overviews of how to interpret the whole book. (This includes Beatus’ prologues, the Summa Dicendorum, and Books 1 and 2 of his Commentary. Plus tons of footnotes.)

About 250 pp, if you don’t count all the extra indexes!

I am keeping the price low, so that people can buy all the volumes together for an affordable price.

  1. Dear M.S. O’Brien, I’ve been waiting over 20 years for an English translation of Beatus of Liebana’s Commentary on the Apocalypse. Would love to buy a copy. Thank you for putting parts of this translation online.

    • You said: “I’ve been waiting over 20 years for an English translation of Beatus of Liebana’s Commentary on the Apocalypse. Would love to buy a copy. Thank you for putting parts of this translation online.”

      Glad to help! I apologize that it’s such a rough first draft on this blog.

      “PS: I was expecting a link to allow me to buy it now, online. If there is one, please send it to me.”

      Sorry about that! The written link was there, but I had accidentally removed the book cover image’s link to Amazon. Here’s Part I over at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C5W8KG2

      Thank you so much for your interest! I hope you will find my translation useful. Part 2 is coming soon, but I apologize for the delay.
