His Fantasy Art coupled with high technology changed the consciousness of the world. "Apocalypse Now" ... "Apocalypse Next Wednesday" ... when did this theological word acquire its real-time burden of fright? According to James Reston, Jr. in his book "The Last Apocalypse: Europe at the Year 1000 AD" [New York: Doubleday, 1998]: "The last book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, sometimes called the Book of the Apocalypse, has something to do with the world's modern association with disaster. In that fantastic and confusing book, we find the images of horrible monsters, islands changing their position, the heavens opening up. Through the first millennium and a half after Christ, these stories were seen as metaphors, the mystical and perhaps even demented imaginings of the apostle St.John the Divine. The tales of an end time were not meant to be treated literally, nor were they so depicted." "In modern usage, however, the word 'Apocalypse' occasions fear and trembling. But the word has been draped with this terrible trapping only in the past 500 years. If we go back to its Greek derivation, the word means an unveiling, an uncovering, a disclosure, a revelation." "I put the transformation of the word's meaning from revelation to catastrophe down to an exact date: AD 1498; to an exact place: Nuremberg, Germany; and to an exact work: a series of woodcut etchings called 'Apocalypse' by Albrecht Durer. Of all the visual depictions of the Apocalypse, these disturbing drawings are the most famous. Durer wiped out the abstract and mystical images. By blending realism with fantasy, his works enhanced the fear and foreboding about the Apocalypse." "Durer's etching of 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' is the best known of the series. The woodcut possesses a horrifying dynamic movement as the four horsemen gallop across the sky, vying with one another for position, trampling their victims underfoot. The rider on the black steed is the central figure. While he trails his balance of justice and judgment behind him in the wind, his face is natural, muscular, human, except that his eyes are blank as if he is blind." "The Fourth Horseman, Death, is placed below the black stallion. The avenger is an emaciated, stick-like figure, with a gaunt face and wild eyes. He carries a pitchform instead of the traditional scythe, as if he is harvesting rather than killing. His advanced age, his crazed look, his decrepit horse make him all the more terrifying." "If Durer's 'Four Horsemen' are his most famous apocalyptic work, his portrayal of the Fifth and Sicth Seals of the sacred book that held the fate of the world lies at the heart of the modern concept of Apocalypse. This was the passage in Revelation that so transfixed David Koresh in Waco, Texas before his fiery incineration.... A shower of burning stars rains down upon a cowering humanity, as the sun turns black 'as a sack cloth of hair' and the moon becomes blood red...." "In part, the paranoia can be explained by the invention of printing. Gutenberg's printing press had arrived in Nuremberg in 1470, and in the years afterward, the presses turned out literature and art with unparalleled speed and in unparalleled quantity. In 1472 the astronomer Johannes Regiomontanus printed a series of popular calendars. For the first time in Western civilization, there was a wide appreciation of the passage of days and years, especially towards an apocalyptic benchmark. The calendars were widely distributed, and Regiomontanus was summoned to Rome by Pope Sixtus IV to work on the reform of the calendar...." Also involved: "... a technical advance in clock-making. The invention of the coil spring around 1500 made it possible to mass-produce small, lightweight clocks for the home. The tick of the clock went along with the turning of the calendar page to give the citizen of Reformation Europe a fresh and intimate awareness of the passage of time toward an unnerving landmark date." "And what happened at that date was revelation: the arrival of Martin Luther and the shaking of the Catholic Church at its roots. Ironically, Luther himself had grave doubts about the Book of Revelation and relegated it to an appendix in his German New Testament. Today, if we have anything overtly apocalyptic, its is the Year 2000 computer problem...."
