The expression Gog and Magog, explained as "the nations in the four corners of the earth" (Rev 20:8) has been placed at the centre of the public agenda by various interpreters. Some have come to different historical and geographical explanations while others prefer to view Gog and Magog within a mythical framework, referring back to the traditions reflected in Ezekiel 38-39. How are we to understand the biblical Gog? The quotations of Gog and Magog in different Jewish, Christian, Samaritan and Muslim apocalyptic writings open up a field of gripping hermeneutical possibilities. In this article different views are explored, to be followed by a next research contribution on the meaning of Rev 20:8 in the light of Ezek 38-39.

A mayor factor in the loss of woman's divine status was the gradual dawning of realization of the truth of biological fatherhood, described as the "greatest revolution in human thought". Thus came the rise of value systems which enshrined maleness as power and defined woman as its opposite, setting every man over every woman, husband over wife, brother over sister, son over mother. This article aims at making the female condition that occurs today in the Greek institutional and social arenas more understandable, starting from the women's position in the Byzantine and post-Byzantine times.
