Book Description:

How does one create vivid narratives about realms that cannot be experienced before death, such as hell, purgatory, and paradise? This work uses early Jewish texts to reconstruct the narrative process of describing journeys to the beyond, and follows its transformations – from the Apocryphal Apocalypses of Peter and Paul to the influential medieval narratives of the Visio Tnugdali and the Tractatus de Purgatorio S. Patricii.
