The widely – even if not unanimously – shared interpretation of Jewish Apocalypticism as a ‘crisis literature’, leads us to the parable known by the term and by the notion of krisis, and urges us to look at Jewish Apocalypticism, in order to prove the presence of a dialectic between krisis and crisis in its history. Jewish Apocalypticism, often defined by modern studies as a ‘crisis literature’, has one of its privileged loci in the link between the modern meaning of ‘crisis’ and the original meaning of krisis. What in modern days is usually defined by the word ‘crisis’, to the author of an apocalyptic text, like to its readers, appeared as the result of a divine judgment (krisis), which solicits a human judgment, according to modalities and intensities that vary between the various works traditionally ascribed to Jewish Apocalypticism, and between the different historical periods in which Jewish apocalyptic thinking unfolds.
